Please be reminded that excellent hand hygiene is one of the best ways to protect yourself and patients from infections. Please encourage each other to wash hands and use “Clean-Remind-Thank”:

  • Clean in and clean out of patient care areas
  • Remind someone if they forget
  • Say “thanks” if someone reminds you
