Hand Hygiene Practices in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit: A Multimodal Intervention and Impact on Nosocomial Infection

A concurrent decrease in health care–associated infection rate and increase in hand hygiene compliance was observed in this study, which could form part of an ongoing audit to provide regular feedback to HCWs to sustain the compliance.

Cost analysis of hand hygiene using antimicrobial soap and water versus an alcohol-based hand rub

The results indicate an alcohol-based hand rub protocol is less costly and less time consuming when compared to traditional handwashing in the dental setting, creating a new paradigm for hand hygiene in the dentist office.

Compliance with infection control procedures in a dental hospital clinic

Nearly all health care workers wore gloves to carry out dental treatment, but in some cases gloves were neither changed nor hands washed between patients.

Compliance with handwashing in a teaching hospital. Infection Control Program.

Variation across hospital ward and type of health care worker suggests that targeted educational programs may be useful and the association between noncompliance and intensity of care suggests that understaffing may decrease quality of patient care.

Handwashing compliance by health care workers: The impact of introducing an accessible, alcohol-based hand antiseptic.

Education/feedback intervention and patient awareness programs failed to improve handwashing compliance, however, introduction of easily accessible dispensers with an alcohol-based waterless handwashing antiseptic led to significantly higher handwashing rates among health care workers.

Antimicrobial efficacy of soap and water hand washing versus an alcohol-based hand cleanser.

The results indicate that the alcohol-based hand cleanser dramatically outperforms the traditional hand washing agent in the general dental setting.

Reduction of Health Care–Associated Infection Risk in Neonates by Successful Hand Hygiene Promotion

Hand hygiene promotion, guided by health care workers' perceptions, identification of the dynamics of bacterial contamination of health Care workers' hands, and performance feedback, is effective in sustaining compliance improvement and is independently associated with infection risk reduction among high-risk neonates.

The first step in infection control is hand hygiene.

A dental health care worker (DHCW) has an obligation to prevent the spread of health care associated infections. Adhering to proper hand hygiene procedures, selecting appropriate hand hygiene

Efficacy of handrubbing with alcohol based solution versus standard handwashing with antiseptic soap: randomised clinical trial

During routine patient care handrubbing with an alcohol based solution is significantly more efficient in reducing hand contamination than handwashing with antiseptic soap.
