Hand hygiene is considered the most effective and efficient way to reduce the spread of infection. Despite this, compliance with recommended hand hygiene practices in healthcare settings is often poor. Monitoring hand hygiene practices allows organizations to identify gaps and respond accordingly, with increased or improved hand hygiene training. Studies show that improving compliance with hand hygiene practices decreases healthcare-associated infections.
