Making a thunderclap for clean hands

31 Jan 2015 Samantha Marsh

Hi. My name is Samantha Marsh and I am an Infection Prevention and Control Nurse at Grantham and District Hospital. Whilst in post for infection prevention at ULHT, I observed that hand hygiene was a big issue when it came to preventing infections and cross infections. Our staff are aware of the hand hygiene policy but were, undoubtedly, suffering from message fatigue. We needed to express ourselves differently and find ways to create a buzz about hand washing. This got me thinking!
