Clean Hands: A 30-Day Program to Lasting Improvement
a professional responsible for hand hygiene compliance, you
know the statistics on healthcare associated infections (HAIs).
You’ve seen firsthand the impact HAIs have on patients,
your peer healthcare workers (HCWs), and your facility. You
understand that proper hand hygiene is a fundamental practice
of any healthcare organization, and the single most important
action to help reduce the spread of infection.
there is more pressure than ever to produce results in
building and maintaining compliance with hand hygiene
standards. However, traditional approaches to education
and hand hygiene promotion yield poor results with compliance
rates averaging 40% across various clinical studies.1
Changing behavior is difficult and usually occurs gradually
over time. Healthcare facilities are complex environments
with many hand hygiene opportunities. Brief training sessions
that touch on hand hygiene often don’t address the
importance of the right technique, new pathogens, and
advice of how to overcome obstacles to good hand hygiene.
Clean Hands was developed to help you educate your facility
on hand hygiene best practices, while promoting behavior change
through self-assessment and improvement planning. GOJO Clean
Hands is a self-administered online education program with
four primary learning objectives:
Review the fundamentals, challenges, and best practices
of good hand hygiene
• Perform self-assessment against
hand hygiene guidelines
• Define individual improvement
• Incorporate hand hygiene improvements
into daily practice
As HCWs move through the program, they receive friendly email
reminders and hand hygiene tips to help them achieve their
improvement goals. The tips and reminders are specific to
the hand hygiene moments the HCW has chosen to improve. Participants
can track their progress through the program and see changes
in individual self-assessment and quiz scores on the site
dashboard. Each HCW who finishes the program gets a certificate
acknowledging their commitment to improved hand hygiene.
GOJO Clean Hands is a flexible tool that
you can use in many ways depending on your facility’s
Action plan in response to an outbreak or cluster of infections
• Annual training or competency
• New employee orientation
• Tier on a clinical ladder
• Behavior modifying intervention
• Risk assessment tool to determine
strengths and weaknesses in your hand hygiene program
