During our recent site visits to participating hospitals we learned that many Infection Preventionists are searching for new and creative ways to deliver messages about the importance of proper hand hygiene and how it relates to the prevention of MRSA. In response, IPRO created the “Hand Hygiene Star” campaign, which includes posters, positive reinforcement giveaways and humorous videos. All tools deliver the message “protect yourself and your patients from MRSA and other infections through proper hand hygiene.”
“Be a Hand Hygiene Star” A staff-oriented poster highlighting the importance of proper hand hygiene. We suggest hanging these posters in staff locker rooms, break rooms, and other places where staff can be exposed to the message on a regular basis.
We hope you find these tools helpful and thank you and your staff for your ongoing commitment to quality and your participation in IPRO’s MRSA Project. firstname.lastname@example.org.
