Abstract

This research study employed correlational research method to investigate the problem. Using total population sampling technique, it included all 69 radiologic technology interns of the College of Medical Radiation Technology of De La Salle Health Sciences Institute. A self-made research instrument with questions depicting the knowledge and level of compliance of radiologic interns to infection control guidelines and measures was used. Data was analyzed using mean, frequency, percentage, t-test for independent samples and Spearman’s rank correlation coefficient. Based on the results, most of the respondents are female and are on their senior year of internship. The knowledge on standard precautions, transmission-based/additional based precautions and cleaning and disinfection are excellent, and in general, the over-all knowledge of the respondents is excellent. The respondents have high compliance with standard precautions, transmission-based/additional precautions and cleaning and disinfection. Therefore, the radiologic technology interns have high compliance on infection control guidelines in general. When grouped according to gender and student type, the over-all knowledge on infection control guidelines of the respondents are the same. The over-all level of compliance on infection control measures of the respondents are not significantly different when the respondents are grouped according to gender and student type. There is little or no significant correlation between over-all knowledge and over-all level of compliance on infection control measures of the respondents.
