WHAT IS AN INFECTIOUS DISEASE?
Infection is a Pathological Process which involves damaging the body tissues by micro-organisms or by toxic substances produced by these organisms.
Pathogenic micro-organisms such as bacteria, viruses and fungi may cause infectious diseases. To put it simply, infectious disease results from the presence and activity of microbial agents, which can potentially be transmitted to others.
Transmission of infectious agents may occur by various routes of exposure.
- Inhalation – Where airborne aerosols or droplets contaminated with micro-organisms are breathed in.
- Direct contact of micro-organisms with dry skin or eyes.
- Percutaneous – This is when organisms penetrate through intact skin, for example, by a needle stick injury.
- Ingestion – Where micro-organisms are consumed in food or drink, usually as a result of poor hygiene.
Embalming can be undertaken to help preserve the body and prevent the spread of infection both before and after the burial, or before a cremation. In order to do this, embalming fluids used must be effective disinfectants against virulent organisms. Our embalmers are qualified to determine the criteria or work required and the fluids needed.
Our embalmers strictly adhere at all times to Infectious Disease Protocols. Their safety and that of others is of paramount importance.
