"Infection Fair" held at Raleigh General Hospital

Posted: Updated:

A fair was held to raise awareness on prevention of infections in Beckley on Wednesday.

Every department constructed a poster board presenting all the ways to prevent them.

This time of year the most common infections seen in our area are the flu, respiratory illnesses and MRSA.

Director of Surgical Services Vivian White told 59News why they wanted to visually show what they do every day.

"We want to take very good care of our patients and keep them safe and infection free and we don't want them coming in here and leaving worse than how they came in here," White said.

Raleigh General plans to make the Infection Fair an annual event.
