Healthcare workers’ (HCWs’) knowledge of infection prevention and control (IPC) methods is critical for effective IPC. Compliance with IPC guidelines have serious consequences for HCW safety, patient safety, and the care environment. This study was carried out by scanning the literature through electronic databases such as Medline, Embase, and PubMed for all relevant papers published up to the beginning of 2023. The nursing home environment is extremely permissive to infection acquisition and spread because susceptible residents share sources of air, food, water, and health care inside an institutional setting. To help enhance nurse knowledge and attitudes toward infection prevention, an educational program should be created. Adopting a diverse approach to IPC improvement intervention tactics has been found to minimize HAIs and enhance HCW compliance with IPC procedures.
