New Hand Hygiene Program Announced

Hand Hygiene FlyerUAMS is introducing a new hand hygiene program designed to help us achieve our goal of zero hospital-acquired infections.  Research shows hand hygiene is the number one way to prevent these infections.  This new program includes signage, education, coaches who will work to educate and monitor employees and an accountability process.

Coaches have been trained and assigned to each clinical area, and they will immediately begin to observe employees as they enter and exit patient spaces to ensure they clean their hands.  Beginning April 1, these coaches will document their observations.  Employees observed not cleaning their hands will be reminded on the spot by the coach and will receive e-mail notification.  As the implementation continues, additional observances of improper hand hygiene will result in progressive disciplinary action.  This phase of the program is expected to begin this summer.

Please click the photo above to review the Hand Hygiene document and join us in practicing good hand hygiene and reminding others in your area to do so as well.
