In brief: Wash your hands!

Best way to prevent spread of infection is to wash our hands.
And wherever some foreign body is supposed to enter our body, wash that area, too. Make sure that foreign body is sterile (unopened package). Ask your nurse to teach you sterile technique. Check w/nutritionist & pharmacist, too. Know how to store tpn.
