Abstract

Much press speculation has projected the controversy of infection control amidst raised public concern over fatalities caused by nosocomial infections. Attention to detailed ultra-cleanliness can never be compromised in the preservation of life, health and wellbeing of the evermore discerning patient. Moreover, complacency to best practice and theatre etiquette potentially endangers a practitioner's own protection, and infringes their Code of Conduct substantiating possible professional disciplinary and/or legal action. To be well versed is to be well armed.
