Practicing correct hand hygiene is essential for hospital workers to protect good health. It’s the simplest and most effective way to prevent infections and the spread of germs, yet research suggests healthcare workers do this only half as much as they should.
Each day about one in 25 hospital patients has at least one healthcare-associated infection. (Source: CDC).
Regular hand washing reduces the risk of flu, food poisoning and healthcare associated infections. For dutiful and responsible employers, reminding staff of good hand hygiene is paramount.
Hardworking hospital staff are constantly busy on wards, attending to patients. In this pressured environment, easy-to-see internal communication is the remedy for lapses in hand hygiene behavior – helping hospitals keep patients, visitors and staff healthy.
