Simple steps to keep you safe during your hospital stay
A new NHS video and leaflet, ‘Simple steps to keep you safe during your hospital stay’, has been launched providing tips and advice on simple things patients can do to look after their safety during a hospital stay.
While the safety of patients is a priority for NHS staff, the video and leaflet provide advice on things patients can do themselves to help stay safe, such as wearing the right footwear to protect themselves from slips and falls, doing leg and ankle exercises to help prevent blood clots and washing hands to prevent the spread of infections.
The video and leaflet can be found on the NHS England website.
The leaflet is available in a number of different languages, and a British Sign Language (BSL) version of the video is available.
