    Precautions

    Safety Precautions for Elective Surgeries

    Remember to take everyday preventive actions that are always recommended to prevent the spread of respiratory viruses.

    • Avoid close contact with sick people.
    • While sick, limit contact with others as much as possible.
    • Stay home if you are sick.
    • Cover your nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands; germs spread this way.
    • Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with germs.
    • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol based hand rub with at least 60% alcohol.
