On-Demand Advisor Live® WEBINAR
Technology and Culture: Critical Elements of a Comprehensive Hand Hygiene Program
It’s no surprise that the healthcare setting contains many germs – from interacting with patients and their families or touching various surfaces. Everyone knows that improving hand hygiene is the most important factor in reducing healthcare-associated infections (HAIs). In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has stated that healthcare providers may need to wash their hands up to 100 times per 12-hour shift.1
Simply put, hand hygiene can save lives. Join us for an Advisor Live® webinar where experts will discuss data showing how an increase in hand hygiene led to a 60 percent reduction in HAIs in 10 hospitals through the use of technology that reminds clinicians to clean their hands.
Viewers will learn about:
- Competency-based training for hand hygiene.
- New technology for monitoring nurse rounding, shift fatigue, contact and exposure tracing, workflow inefficiencies, and even how often patients in isolation are visited as compared to normal patients.
- Where to find additional hand hygiene resources.
