Hand hygiene

5 Point Hand Hygiene Poster

Hand hygiene is the single most effective way to prevent the transmission of health care associated infection. Papworth Hospital is committed to promoting hand hygiene practice at the point of care amongst our staff. As part of the campaign for promotion of effective hand hygiene, patients and visitors are encouraged to ask healthcare workers if they have washed their hands at the point of care. 'It's OK to ask.'

Audits of hand hygiene are carried out both on a weekly and monthly basis.
