When You Can't Wash Your Hands, Try This

Frequent hand washing is extremely important to help prevent nosocomial infections; however, compliance can be a problem. Encourage all staff members who have contact with patients to carry a bottle of quick-drying gel hand disinfectant with them. Of course, the gel is not a substitute for hand washing; both should be used to prevent infections.
