    Infection Control

    What is Infection Control?

    Infection control refers to the practices and procedures put in place to prevent the spread of infection. This is particularly important in wound care, where open wounds are at risk of infection from bacteria and other microorganisms.

    Our Infection Control Protocols

    At OptemizeMD, we follow strict infection control protocols to protect our patients and staff from the spread of infection. Here are some of the measures we take to maintain a safe and sterile environment:

    • Hand Hygiene: Proper hand hygiene is one of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of infection. Our staff is trained in proper hand hygiene techniques, and we provide hand sanitizer and hand-washing stations throughout the center.
    • Sterile Techniques: We use sterile techniques for all wound care procedures, including dressing changes and debridement. This includes using sterile gloves, gowns, and other equipment.
    • Environmental Cleaning: We maintain a clean and sterile environment by regularly cleaning and disinfecting all surfaces and equipment in our center. We use hospital-grade disinfectants and follow strict cleaning protocols to ensure that our center is always safe and sterile.
    • Patient Isolation: If a patient is at risk of spreading infection, we may isolate them to prevent the spread of infection to other patients.
    • Staff Education: Our staff is regularly trained on infection control protocols to ensure that we are always up to date on the latest practices and procedures.

    Why Infection Control is Important for Wound Care

    Infection control is critical in wound care because open wounds are at high risk of infection. Infection can slow down the healing process and lead to complications like sepsis, cellulitis, and osteomyelitis.

    By following strict infection control protocols, we can prevent the spread of infection and promote faster healing for our patients.

    I recently sustained a burn to my ankle in March which necessitated an Emergency Room visit. When the severity of the wound and the lengthy treatment needed was discussed, I was told of the new wound Center and soon met Dr. Gordon and Irina who immediately became my new best friends.

    Dr. Carl Mani

    First and foremost, Dr. Anthony Gordon and Irena Shteyn, RN, CWOCN saved my life.
    I had severe wounds in both lower legs due to a severe case of cellulitis. I was in acute pain and worried about my prognosis.

    Barbara Scrooc

    I had an accident that injured my leg and I didn’t see a doctor for over a week. I noticed that the wound was not healing so I went to the Emergency at Novato Community Hospital. They told me to see a wound specialist ASAP and they recommended Dr. Anthony Gordon at the Marin Advanced Wound Center.

    Myra Perea

    My father got treatment from Dr. Gordon for his burn wound. Dr. Gordon was very caring, attentive and spent generous amounts of time to give him very effective treatment.
