National Patient Safety Goal: Prevent Infection Through Hand Hygiene

Proper hand hygiene reduces the risk of health care-associated infections, which reduces the number of medical errors. Hand hygiene is a term that means cleansing of the hands by either washing with soap and water or by applying an antiseptic agent to the hands, such as an alcohol-based hand rub. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has posted on its website guidelines for proper hand hygiene techniques. These guidelines can be found on the CDC website at: http://www.cdc.gov/handhygiene/Basics.html. Accessed October 30, 2017.
