Infection Prevention Program

About the MaineHealth Infection Prevention Program

The mission of the Infection Prevention Program is to improve the health and safety of patients and providers by using the principles and practices of infection control. Our vision is to improve patient outcomes in the MaineHealth service area by doing the following:

  • Standardizing care through the use of evidence-based protocols and guidelines
  • Educating providers and patients about infection control practices
  • Collecting and analyzing data to understand infection rates in MaineHealth hospitals

These three posters are the winners of the MaineHealth Hand Hygiene Poster Contest.  Many thanks to Maya Downs, Grace Carlson, and Annika Johnston for their creativity!  These posters will be hung in MaineHealth hospitals to remind patients, staff, and health care workers to clean their hands!
