Each year, Lourdes holds its safety fair as a way to educate employees around best practices regarding infection control, violence prevention, and emergency preparedness. This year’s safety fair not only educated, but celebrated recent accolades that Lourdes employees have earned through upholding best practices. These include HealthGrades, Joint Commission, and Truven Health Analytics awards.

At the fair, employees could have their photo taken in the photo booth holding images of the HealthGrades awards or with a sign that says “I’m a Safety Hero.” They also had a chance to win prizes, test their knowledge on the Lourdes Wheel of Workplace Safety, and enjoy visits by the Camden Riversharks mascot and Lourdes’ Sanitizer Superhero.

Lourdes’ Sanitizer Superhero was at the hospital throughout the day, distributing hand sanitizer and handwashing tips to staff and visitors. The Santizer is Lourdes’ superhero who fights the bad guys (bad germs that cause infection). He protects patients and employees from sickness. And he serves as a reminder that with proper hand hygiene, employees can continue to help patients heal so that they, and everyone, can lead healthier lives.
