Assessment of healthcare professionals' adherence to hand hygiene after alcohol-based hand rub introduction at an intensive care unit in São Paulo, Brazil



Assessment of healthcare professionals' adherence to hand hygiene after alcohol-based hand rub introduction at an intensive care unit in São Paulo, Brazil



Infection Control and Hospital Epidemiology 28(3): 365-367



We analyzed the impact of introducing an alcohol- based hand gel and an educational program on hand hygiene adherence among healthcare workers in an intensive care unit. Adherence to hand hygiene was significantly higher after the intervention for the night shift work period (P=.001), among nursing assistants (P=.001), among nurses (P=.007) on weekend days (P=.016), and for in. vasive procedures (P=.012).
