In the rush to provide quality care, healthcare workers are forgetting the importance of hand hygiene. That's why the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or CDC developed a comprehensive guideline for hand hygiene in healthcare settings. This program covers these revised guidelines and research results on how healthcare workers are spreading infection to patients. This program explains the importance of hand hygiene and recognized activities that can cause hand contamination and the spread of microorganisms.
