Infectious Diseases

 

Epworth provides a safe environment for the treatment of Infectious Diseases collaborating with other disciplines to ensure the highest standard of infection control and prevention. We operate with a multidisciplinary approach interacting with patients and their families for inpatient and day-care, to prevent and manage diseases and all aspects of infection control.

 

We work with some of the leading doctors and specialists in Melbourne and  have in place group wide programs including handwashing, education, staff immunisation, surveillance and research based projects to assist in infection prevention.

 

There are Infection Control and Prevention Staff based at all acute sites, Epworth Richmond, Epworth Freemasons and Epworth Eastern. Staff attend the Rehabilitation sites on a regular basis.
