World Hand Hygiene Day-5th of May 2020

The World Health Organisation’s annual call to action for healthcare professionals means that safer care and improved outcomes are provided to patients.  Hand hygiene is one of the most effective actions to reduce the spread of pathogens and prevent infections.  We are aware of this now more than ever with the COVID-19 pandemic.  And this message is the only thing we want spread in the community!

Soap + water + time = Good Hand Hygiene

Alcohol hand rub is still in short supply and while it is a convenient way to keep up your hand hygiene, soap and water is shown to be more effective.  The two most important steps to remember with use of soap and water are:

  1. time – 20 seconds is the minimum time to take when washing your hands, to ensure full coverage, and
  2. to make sure to scrub your whole hands – the backs of your hands, between your fingers, your fingertips and under your nails.

No gym, No worries
