Zone in on zero harm™ for infection prevention

Reduce healthcare-associated infections with a 3-zone strategy.

Preventing the spread of infectious pathogens

Every day, frontline leaders are challenged to prevent the spread of infectious pathogens. There are many ways pathogens can cause infections. Through contaminated surfaces, air and water. By touch and bodily contact, and through invasive procedures.

Medline Canada is committed to reducing HAIs by helping hospitals shift thinking through education, process optimization and product quality.  

Preventing HAIs

Not all infections are inevitable. Some infections are preventable, and Medline Canada supports this slight but vital shift in perspective. 

Ownership and understanding the important role care practice plays in preventing HAIs across your organization is key. Medline's 3-zone strategy covers the entire perimeter of risk, emphasizing people and process to increase safety.

Our clinical support, process-improvement programs, and products are specifically designed to drive compliance. Medline Canada’s goal is to increase prevention of the 3 most common causes of HAIs (accounting for approximately 80% of all HAI rates): 

  • Central line-associated bloodstream infection (CLABSI)
  • Catheter-associated urinary tract infection (CA-UTI)
  • Surgical site infection (SSI)

Build shared accountability with our 3-zone strategy

Target zero harm with our 3-zone strategy that covers the full perimeter of risk. It emphasizes people, process and products to help teams work together to sustain a culture of safety:

1. Environment of care

2. Direct transmission

3. Clinical practice

Zone 1 | Environment of Care

Healthcare environments are hot spots for surface and airborne pathogens that increase HAI risk. We help you standardize processes with intuitive, evidence-based products so your EVS team can properly clean and disinfect—consistently.

Environmental Disinfection Program

Zone 2 | Direct Transmission

Pathogens spread easily through direct contact, whether by hands, face or body. When everyone uses the right products and practices, you can stop the transmission of dangerous pathogens.

Hand Hygiene Solution


Zone 3 | Clinical Practice

Indwelling urinary catheters and central venous catheters increase the risk of dangerous and costly catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs) and central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSIs)*. We offer customizable, evidence-based bundles that help staff consistently use best practices.
