Report Summary

Hospital leaders in the C-suite and infection preventionists (IPs) perceive many issues related to hand hygiene compliance similarly, according to the results of two separate surveys of IPs and healthcare institution/system administrators conducted in February and April, respectively, by Infection Control Today magazine. This report summarizes findings from the surveys that explore these stakeholders' perspectives on hand hygiene within the context of quality improvement and a culture of safety.

Editor's Take

When it comes to the current quality of hand hygiene compliance among staff, IPs tended to judge it slightly less optimistically. Just 5 percent of IPs characterized it as excellent, while 20 percent called it very good, 36 percent said it was good, 33 percent called it average and 6 percent reported it as being poor. Among C-suite respondents, just 2 percent rated it as excellent, 34 percent called it very good, 42 percent saw it as good, 20 percent said it was average, and 2 percent characterized it as poor.
