Nursing Standard supported the 2005 Wipe it Out campaign, developed by the RCN in partnership with the Infection Control Nurses' Association, to develop minimum standards on infection control and prevention.
It intended to compliment existing strategies aimed at reducing infection rates across the UK and to support efforts to combat the spread of MRSA in particular.
