A poster used to highlight the importance of using clinical wash hand basins correctly.



This poster highlights how we should correctly use clinical wash hand basin in hospital environments, what their intended purpose is, and risk of water associated infection. The poster supports the message that we can reduce risk by following few simple rules. The CA and NES teams produced an animation highlighting the importance of correct use of CWHB which this poster supports. This poster is for use beside CWHBs to locally promote good practice for health and care staff as well as the general public who may visit those settings.
