English term or phrase: Welcome to Southend Hospital. I am Emma, one of the Infection Control Sisters.
For Finnish nurses just arrived in the country to ease them into an English teaching session. The words: bacteria, virus and handwashing would also be very helpful.

Sister = osastonhoitaja (nurse in charge of a ward); päähoitaja (chief nurse)
'infektioiden torjunnasta vastaava päähoitaja' = chief nurse responsible for infection control

Bakteria = bakteeri, sg./ bakteerit, pl.
Virus = virus; virustauti (=viral disease)
handwashing = käsien pesu ('washing of hands')
