Covid-19, a year in the role of Infection, Prevention and Control.

Jacky Hunt, Southern Health’s Lead Nurse for Infection, Prevention and Control

This didn’t put me off though, I loved the fascinating world of microbes! How can something so small and invisible cause so much misery to patients and their loved ones, staff and visitors? The challenge still remains the same to this day.

“What got me through apart from a strong faith and Netflix? Kindness! -Kindness from the general public.”

“The Cinderella of nursing specialities has finally come to the ball! Only others could say for sure but I’d like to think IPC is no longer seen as an ‘add on’ to care but more an integral part where good compliance with IPC precautions is synonymous with caring.”
