Abstract

Quality of hand hygiene was evaluated with direct observation method of six World Health Organization steps. It was monitored 2497 HH opportunities, which 1573 (63.0%) were hand rub. Compliance was high in nurse compared with physician and auxiliaries, and for step 1 and 2 in hand rubs and the first three steps of hand washing, with lowest figure after these. Rubbing of thumbs and fingertips achieves the lowest compliance in both HH types. A combination of five moments and six steps and staff education will be recommended to improve quality of hand hygiene.
