Free ebook being made available through Mosby's Nursing Consult addresses the seemingly ongoing problem of hand hygiene!

"Everyone at your hospital knows when and how to clean their hands, right? Not so, says the Joint Commission, the publishers of this new monograph, "Measuring Hand Hygiene Adherence: Overcoming the Challenges."
The report notes that "A quick rinse under the sink or brief rub between palms with alcohol-based hand rub may not be thorough enough to eliminate potential pathogens". Click on the title to read the whole report on .pdf.
