Latrobe Regional Hospital

Infection Control

Latrobe Regional Hospital has procedures in place to prevent the spread of infections to patients, visitors and staff.

We have an infection control team which conducts regular audits of clinical areas, patient records and microbiological reports.

The hospital’s environmental, cleaning and waste disposal procedures are also audited regularly.


Our Vision: One infection is too many.


Our Mission: To work with the Latrobe Regional Hospital community to protect all from transmission of infectious agents. We will achieve this through use of evidence-based infection control preventions, surveillance, education, immunisation and promotion of safe work practice including:

  • hand hygiene
  • staff immunisation program
  • management of needlestick injuries
  • hospital acquired infection data collection
  • review of all positive pathology results
  • infection control auditing of clinical areas

Support Life - our new appeal

You can join the team at LRH in saving lives by helping us raise funds for new defibrillators at the hospital. We are keen to replace 14 defibrillators at LRH to ensure you, your family and friends have access to the highest level of care while you're a patient or visitor at our hospital.
