Saraya Hygiene Malaysia was proud to join the 4th Borneo Infection Control Congress (BICC) held on May 15th and 16th in Kuching, Malaysia. Every two years the BICC is held on the island of Borneo in East Malaysia. This was the first year the congress was held in Kuching, Sarawak.
The BICC attracts participants from all over Malaysia, making it the most anticipated and active infection control conferences in Malaysia with a large community dedicated to learning and practicing the latest in patient safety and infection control.
The BICC is famous for bringing premiere speakers from all over Asia. This year participants were able to attend presentations by Prof. Seto, Prof. Patrica Ching, Prof. Ling Moi Ling and Professor Didier Pittet from Geneva University Hospital.
This year was especially exciting due to the release of "Clean Hands Save Lives" by Thierry Crouzet. This book was written based on interviews with Professor Pittet and his experience bringing hand hygiene to the forefront of patient safety, changing healthcare culture and saving millions of lives.
Saraya sponsored a book signing by Professor Pittet, and was a highlight of the BICC, attracting hundreds of nurses and doctors to meet Professor Pittet.
Hospital related infections kill millions of patients each year while in hospital care. Professor Pittet's work is dedicated to improving patient safety around the world. Please read "Clean Hands Save Lives," which is available from Amazon and your favorite book store.
