BHS Emergency Department Hand Hygiene
Recomendations from the March 2014 audit suggested improvements in hand hygiene compliances requires all staff to actively encourage compliance across all levels of staff within the departement. In the 'moments' where demonstrated compliance was less than 70%, prompting is suggested by colleagues.
All staff are required to complete and demostrate completions of the HH compentency test available throught the E3 learning portal located on the BHS intranet annually.
