Audit and feedback based on direct observation is a common strategy to improve hand hygiene compliance, but the optimal design and delivery of this intervention are poorly defined.
Compliance with hand hygiene guidelines reduces the risk of health care-associated infection, yet doctors are less compliant than other health care workers. Use of observational hand hygiene auditing ...
Hand hygiene is the most important intervention to reduce the risk of transmission of pathogens in health care. Assurance of effective hand hygiene improvement campaigns includes adequate data analyti...
Frequent hand hygiene by anesthesia personnel may be an important factor in reducing contamination of IV lines and medication access ports and may reduce hospital-acquired infections. Measurement of h...
No single strategy is more effective than proper hand hygiene (HH) in reducing the spread of nosocomial infections. Unfortunately, health care worker compliance with HH is imperfect. We sought to impr...
Evaluate the efficacy of a multimodal hand hygiene system in the intensive care unit environment and evaluate any impact on health care associated infections.
This randomized controlled trial will evaluate the effect of a multifaceted intervention including performance feedback on adherence to hand hygiene among healthcare workers. A key compone...
The purpose of this study is to determine if use of the video camera surveillance system for HH observation and performance feedback about HH compliance rates can improve the HH compliance...
Non-inferiority in terms of reduction of bacterial counts will be investigated when combining the simpler three-step hand hygiene technique for the use of hand rub with a shorter applicati...
If patients acquire a new infection whilst in hospital this can cause significant morbidity, prolonged hospitalisation and even death. Indeed, there is much public concern about infections...
Practices involved in preventing the transmission of diseases by hand.
Ultrasonography applying the Doppler effect combined with real-time imaging. The real-time image is created by rapid movement of the ultrasound beam. A powerful advantage of this technique is the ability to estimate the velocity of flow from the Doppler shift frequency.
A mechanism of communication with a physiological system for homeostasis, adaptation, etc. Physiological feedback is mediated through extensive feedback mechanisms that use physiological cues as feedback loop signals to control other systems.
The observation and analysis of movements in a task with an emphasis on the amount of time required to perform the task.
The act of regarding attentively and studying facts and occurrences, gathering data through analyzing, measuring, and drawing conclusions, with the purpose of applying the observed information to theoretical assumptions. Observation as a scientific method in the acquisition of knowledge began in classical antiquity; in modern science and medicine its greatest application is facilitated by modern technology.
