NEVADA CITY, Calif. (PRWEB) May 03, 2018
Northern California based Best Sanitizers, Inc. is joining forces with parent company Saraya Co., Ltd., and the World Health Organization to help support World Hand Hygiene Day, May 5th, 2018. This annual campaign is designed to raise global awareness to the lifesaving benefits that good hand hygiene provides. This year's campaign is focusing on good hand hygiene practices as a tool to prevent sepsis in healthcare facilities.
Globally, sepsis affects more than 30 million healthcare patients every year. Sepsis is a life-threatening organ dysfunction that frequently results from infections acquired in healthcare settings. Implementing preventive measures such as a proper hand hygiene program can help reduce the occurrence.
Through education and awareness, the campaign aims to help educate healthcare workers, patients, and the general public on how hand hygiene can help to reduce the occurrence of sepsis in the healthcare environment.
This year’s slogan is, “It’s in your hands – prevent sepsis in healthcare”. The World Health Organization (WHO) hand hygiene campaign represents a unified community of healthcare professionals and patient advocacy groups to make improvements for patient safety. Today, more than 20,000 facilities across 179 countries have been supporting the annual Clean Hands campaign.
World Hand Hygiene Day is a day for health workers, IPC leaders, facility leaders, ministries of health, and patient advocacy groups to focus on the prevention of sepsis in health care. Practicing the 5 moments for hand hygiene can reduce the risk of Sepsis infections.
The 5 Moments for Hand Hygiene are:
1. Before touching a patient
2. Before clean/aseptic procedures
3. After body fluid exposure/risk
4. After touching a patient
5. After touching patient surroundings
