Saraya Australia were once again pleased to support and be involved in this year’s World Health Organisations May 5 hand hygiene campaign.
This year the message was "it's in your hands – prevent sepsis in health care". It represents a joined-up approach to action by targeting a range of professionals, as well as patient advocacy groups, who can all play their part. At every level of the health system, infection prevention and control (IPC) measures, including hand hygiene action, should be a marker of quality care – with individuals, both front-line and leaders, each deciding to take individual responsibility to ensure improvements in patient safety.
All events had interaction from management, staff, patients and visitors, helping to promote the importance of performing hand hygiene. #thepowertostayhealthyisinyourhands
