 Preventing the spread of germs

Preventing the Spread
of Germs

Patient safety is a priority. In the hospital, it is everyone’s job to stop the spread of germs from one person to another. Hand washing is your best defense against infection. Washing hands with soap and water or waterless hand sanitizer (if hands are not visibly soiled) are both acceptable ways to wash your hands. Please wash your hands often and feel free to ask your healthcare providers if they have washed their hands. In the event of heightened infection control measures, visitor restrictions may be in effect.

Wash Your Hands

  • When you enter or exit the hospital
  • When hands are visibly dirty
  • Before you eat or drink
  • After you use the washroom
  • After you cough, sneeze, blow your nose
  • After you handle garbage
  • Cough or sneeze into your sleeve.


Please do not visit hospitalized family members or friends when you are sick.

Is there a designated smoking area at the hospital?

As of January 1, 2018, our Chatham and Wallaceburg Campuses became 100 per cent smoke-free. New provincial legislation prohibits smoking cigarettes and any other smoking product on hospital property; this includes existing smoking shelters, exterior grounds, parking lots, bus shelters and the property of 47 Emma Street and the Foundation of CKHA.  This new provincial legislation helps protect our patients, families, visitors, staff and the public from the hazards of second-hand smoke. 

Under these new restrictions, hospital security guards are the first line of enforcement and will have the ability to ticket people who are smoking on hospital property. CKHA works with the Chatham-Kent Public Health Unit’s Tobacco Enforcement Officer, who has grounds to lay charges. Violators are subject to a fine of $175 up to a maximum of $5000.
