Reducing Infections Through Hand Hygiene

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 1.7 million patients in American hospitals develop healthcare-associated infections each year, leading to about 99,000 deaths annually. Clinical studies have shown that healthcare-associated infection rates were lower after antiseptic handwashing.

Did you know that each clinician can help reduce the number of healthcare-associated infections by following hand hygiene guidelines? That is our mission: to eliminate  healthcare-associated infections through  education of proper hand hygiene.
