Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital (MTRH) Eldoret has adopted a new policy that provides guidelines to control infections transmission among clinical staff and patients.
The policy will give direction to staff and clients in the prevention and control of disease infection within the settings of the hospital.
The policy makes the country’s second largest referral facility the first hospital to adopt the guidelines.
“This policy guides both patients and medical staff on what they are supposed to do when there are admissions. The guidelines will effectively control infection transmission between patients, clinical staff and patient,” said Dr John Kibosia, the MTRH director.
