Hoitotyön tutkimussäätiö

WHO Clean is Safer Care programme, here are 10 reasons why you should be part of it:

  • Hand hygiene at the right times saves lives.
  • Hand hygiene in health care has saved millions of lives in the last years.
  • Hand hygiene is a quality indicator of safe healthcare systems.
  • Health-care problems, like HAIs which are often invisible but nevertheless still occur, are political and social challenges that we must address now.
  • Infections can be stopped through good hand hygiene, and patient and health worker harm prevented for less than $10.
  • Affordable life-saving technology is available! Alcohol-based handrub, which costs approximately $3 per bottle, can prevent HAI and millions of deaths every year.
  • #handhygiene exists in the media, which means it exists as an important topic, whether due to HAI or outbreaks of deadly diseases like Ebola.
  • Embedding specific moments for hand hygiene action into health worker workflow makes it easier to do the right thing every minute, every hour, every day.
  • Infection prevention is at the heart of strengthening health-care systems. Hand hygiene is core to all interventions, whether inserting an invasive device, managing a surgical wound, or giving an injection.
  • The social epidemic has already begun to spread with SAVE LIVES: Clean Your Hands, a successful global campaign promoting hand hygiene action at the point of patient care.
