Healthwoods Endoscopy Centre Hand Hygiene Compliance
Hand hygiene (or hand washing) is one of the best ways to stop infections so, as a priority, we educate and train all caregivers in the World Health Organisation's (WHO) "five moments" for hand hygiene. We also audit our staff and provide our results to the National Hand Hygiene Initiative (NHHI) to compare us against other hospitals.
Healthwoods Endoscopy Centre ranks higher than national targets for hand hygiene. Our auditors complete compliance audits on a regular basis and submit data three times a year. We also participate in the national hand hygiene strategy to continually improve our rates.
