Schneider Children’s was accorded a “Grade of Excellence” in Infection Control based on the Ministry of Health’s 2017 national incentive model. The model measures and grades hospitals’ accomplishments in acquired infection control, adherence to required standards for minimization, and management and eradication of infections caused by bacteria resistant to antibiotics.

 

The Infection Control Team at Schneider Children’s invests much effort in promoting awareness, and conducts explanations to the medical, nursing and para-medical staff, hospital employees, and parents and children regarding simple hygienic habits to prevent the spread of infection. The team comprises Prof. Yitzhak Levy, Director of the Infectious Diseases Unit, Dr. Meirav Mor, Director of Infection Control, Sigalit Rosenfeld, Coordinator of Infection Control, Sarit Bitan, Dalit Cohen, Bina Rubinstein and administrative staffer Rakefet Admoni.

 

Dr. Avinoam Pirogovsky, Deputy Director of Schneider Children’s, congratulated the team for their “persistence, determination and professionalism”. He also praised the staff in the hospital “who are full partners in this achievement through their meticulous adherence to infection control safety regulations. The war against infection is a daily battle, and together we will succeed in halting the chain of infection and ensuring the safety of our patients.”
