I WOULD like to create awareness among people about the importance of sterilisation.
People not only related to healthcare profession but also in salons are particularly susceptible to infection due to improper sterilisation techniques.
It is necessary to adopt proper sterilisation techniques to prevent the spread of deadly viruses.
Improperly sterilised or contaminated medical devices in patient-care can contribute to serious life-threatening infection such as HIV, hepatitis B and hepatitis C.
Not only in healthcare profession but in salons also sterilisation is mandatory and should be strictly followed.
Salon sterilisation techniques are vital in protecting patrons from the dangers some salon might pose.
Improper sterilisation in salons can lead to serious diseases like bacterial infection, fungal infection, Herpes and even hepatitis B, hepatitis C and HIV that can occur while using contaminated razors, scissors and clippers.
The need to understand and address the extent of these practices to prevent these deadly diseases from spreading is critically imperative.
