Healthcare associated infection prevention begins with proper hand hygiene. While there are many factors that cause healthcare associated infections, hand hygiene is the foundation of infection prevention.
ICU compliance rate
There is another major problem in this space and that is the hand hygiene compliance rate, with a low-end median of only 31% across the United States in intensive care units. This means there are 69% missed hand hygiene opportunities at any given time.
Not only can an increase in hand hygiene save patient lives, but it can also save hospitals money. A study has shown that a 1.0% increase in hand hygiene compliance resulted in annual savings of $39,650 to a 200-bed hospital.
