Patient care is at the top of mind of all healthcare workers which is why the Joint Commission says that facilities need to follow WHO or CDC guidelines for hand hygiene compliance.

The Patient Safety Movement also recommends many other hand hygiene initiatives to improve patient care and reduce infections.
