SAVE LIVES: Clean Your Hands - WHO's global annual campaign
Let's celebrate 5 May 2013!
Our call to action for you is:
- Continue to focus on hand hygiene monitoring and feedback!
Evaluation and repeated monitoring of a range of indicators reflecting hand hygiene infrastructures and practices, as well as health-care workers’ and senior managers’ knowledge and perception of the problem of health care-associated infection and the importance of hand hygiene at the health-care facility, is a vital component of any successful hand hygiene campaign.
- Patients have a voice too!
Identify the best ways to gather patient participation in hand hygiene promotion and improvement, according to the local culture and your facility’s current hand hygiene strategy.
