Hand hygiene is a simple thing and it is essential to prevent infection and illness. The annual Hand Hygiene Day is supported by the World Health Organisation to encourage healthcare workers to promote good hand hygiene practices to reduce the risk of infection among patients.
This year’s theme is effectively summarised: SAVE LIVES: Clean your Hands!
