Impact of Educational Intervention for Hand Hygiene on Dental Students' Knowledge, Attitude, and Bacterial Contamination Level on Hands.

Hand Hygiene Practices in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit: A Multimodal Intervention and Impact on Nosocomial Infection
TLDR
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. Expand
Cost analysis of hand hygiene using antimicrobial soap and water versus an alcohol-based hand rub
TLDR
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. Expand
Compliance with infection control procedures in a dental hospital clinic
TLDR
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. Expand
Compliance with handwashing in a teaching hospital. Infection Control Program.
TLDR
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. Expand
Microbiological evaluation of two hand hygiene procedures achieved by healthcare workers during routine patient care: a randomized study.
TLDR
Hand rubbing is more efficacious than handwashing for the decontamination of healthcare workers' hands following contact with patients and patients' environments, and the absence of gloving may reduce microbiological hand contamination by transient pathogens. Expand
Handwashing compliance by health care workers: The impact of introducing an accessible, alcohol-based hand antiseptic.
TLDR
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. Expand
Antimicrobial efficacy of soap and water hand washing versus an alcohol-based hand cleanser.
TLDR
The results indicate that the alcohol-based hand cleanser dramatically outperforms the traditional hand washing agent in the general dental setting. Expand
Hand hygiene
TLDR
It is two years since the hand washing liaison group drew attention in the BMJ to the importance of hand washing in reducing hospital acquired infections and has changed its name to the hand hygiene liaison group and has some practical recommendations on easy ways of improving hygiene. Expand
Role of hand hygiene in healthcare-associated infection prevention.
TLDR
Factors influencing hand hygiene compliance, the impact of hand hygiene promotion on healthcare-associated pathogen cross-transmission and infection rates, and challenging issues related to the universal adoption of alcohol-based hand rub as a critical system change are reviewed. Expand
Reduction of Health Care–Associated Infection Risk in Neonates by Successful Hand Hygiene Promotion
TLDR
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.
