Our Hand Washing Steps

Hand hygiene is the most effective way we can prevent the spread of infection. It is our policy to follow the World Health Organization’s 5 moments for Hand Hygiene:

  1. Before touching a patient
  2. Before a clean or aseptic procedure
  3. After body fluid exposure risk
  4. After touching a patient
  5. After touching patient surroundings

We monitor this compliance through direct observations by the Infection Prevention Department and “Secret Shoppers.”
