Medical Center More Than Doubles Handwashing Rates During 'Big Wash'

Friday, January 15, 2016   (0 Comments)

The University of Chicago Medicine more than doubled the industry’s daily handwashing rate during a unique, 24-hour campus-wide challenge aimed at reducing hospital-acquired infections (HAIs). The one-day Big Wash, which took place in December, inspired nearly 97,000 hand-hygiene events in 24 hours – roughly one hand scrubbing per second. The figure is based on the number of times each patient, visitor and employee used hand sanitizer or soap as they entered and exited a patient room.
