Hand hygiene compliance is low among anesthesia providers in the operating room, which places patients at risk of preventable infections. The goal of this project was to improve hand hygiene compliance by educating anesthesia providers on the World Health Organization's 5 indications for hand hygiene, and increasing access to hand hygiene products in the operating room.
Hand hygiene is the most important strategy for preventing healthcare-associated infections (HCAIs); however, the impact of hand hygiene in middle-income countries has been poorly described. In this work, we describe the impact of the programme 'Let's Go for 100' on hand hygiene adherence, HCAIs rates and multidrug-resistant (MDR) bacteria, including the molecular typing of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) strains.
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 with targeted individualized feedback was implemented, with improved hand hygiene of consultant doctors; however, the factors that influenced this were not explained by previous quantitative data. The aim was to explore consultant doctors' opinions about the influence of observational hand hygiene auditing with...
This study investigated the cause of hand hygiene deficit, and further implemented a quality improvement program using WHO's hand-hygiene strategy to enhance the compliance of hand hygiene in the nursing home in Taiwan.
Automated Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID)-based hand hygiene monitoring technology has been implemented in an infectious disease department to study healthcare workers' (HCWs) practices and improve hand hygiene.
Healthcare Worker (HCW) hand hygiene compliance is key to patient safety; however, compliance is suboptimal. Despite this hand hygiene compliance is not well studied in the long-term care setting.
We aimed to assess compliance, knowledge, and attitudes regarding the World Health Organization (WHO) 5 moments for hand hygiene (HH).
Our goal for this study was to quantify healthcare provider compliance with hand hygiene protocols and develop a conceptual framework for increasing hand hygiene compliance in a low-resource neonatal intensive care unit.
Hand hygiene (HH) plays an important role in infection prevention but is often suboptimal.
The aim of the study was to explore the impact of nurse workloads on adherence to hand hygiene.
Aim of study was to evaluate the effects of a multi-component intervention on nursing students' knowledge of evidence-based hand-hygiene. A quasi-experimental design was used. Nursing students (N = 146) from two universities of applied sciences (experimental group n = 107, control group n = 39) completed an instrument based on international clinical guidelines related to hand hygiene that consisted of 17 Likert-scale items. Data were collected at three time points (baseline, after university-bas...
To evaluate the effect of the "Clean Hands, Happy Life" intervention on the incidence of Hand, food and mouth disease (HFMD) and on school absences due to sickness in kindergarten students.
To assess the quality of self-assessment and the attitude of healthcare workers (HCWs) to hand hygiene (HH) as possible factors of unsatisfactory HH compliance in clinical practice.
Better understanding of the characteristics of interventions which are attractive to nurses is required in order to implement effective hand hygiene interventions.
Although the hand hygiene (HH) procedure is simple, the related behaviour is complex and is not readily understood, explained, or changed. There is a need for practical tools to provide data that can guide healthcare managers and practitioners not only on the 'what' (the standards that must be met), but also the 'how' (guidance on how to achieve the standards).
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.
As hospitals are increasingly consolidating into larger health systems, they are becoming better positioned to have far reaching and material impacts on safety and quality of care. When the Mount Sinai Health System (MSHS) was formed in 2013, it sought to ensure the delivery of safe, high-quality care to every patient. In 2014, the MSHS addressed hand hygiene as the first major system-wide process improvement project focused on quality and safety. The goals of this study were to evaluate a system-wide hand ...
Patient hand hygiene is a commonsense measure that has been associated with reductions in colonization or infection with bacterial and viral pathogens in quasi-experimental studies. We conducted a nonblinded pilot randomized trial to assess the impact of an educational patient hand hygiene intervention on acquisition of colonization by selected health care-associated pathogens in hospitalized patients. For patients with negative admission cultures, the intervention did not reduce the new acquisition of colo...
The degree of altruistic behavior among strangers is an evolutionary puzzle. A prominent explanation is the evolutionary legacy hypothesis according to which an evolved reciprocity-based psychology affects behavior even when reciprocity is impossible, i.e., altruistic behavior in such instances is maladaptive. Empirical support for this explanation comes from laboratory experiments showing that surveillance cues, e.g., photographs of watching eyes, increase altruistic behavior. A competing interpretation fo...
Millions of dollars have been spent on the design and dissemination of educational materials to improve handwashing to prevent infectious diseases. School-age children have been the focus of many of these efforts; yet little is known about the content of these materials. This study uses content analysis to examine the theoretical and motivational trends as well as the communication approach used in a sample of hand hygiene intervention materials targeting elementary-age children. Two trained coders analyzed...
Patient empowerment is a component of the World Health Organization's multimodal strategy to improve hand hygiene (HH). Its successful implementation requires knowledge of the perceptions and attitudes of patients and health care workers (HCWs) toward patient empowerment in HH.
Introduction Dental plaque is a major aetiological factor in the development of periodontal disease; thus, it is essential to remove dental plaque to maintain good oral health. We used a simple method to visually evaluate a patient's dexterity to assess their oral care efficiency. The aim of this study was to evaluate dexterity and the effect it has on plaque control. Materials and methods A total of 80 patients, aged between 18 and 60 years, participated in this study. Participants were asked to pick up pe...
