Practicing good hand hygiene is one of the simplest things you can do to save a life. Are Your Hands Clean?
Qsource works with hospitals and practices to develop a peer-enforced hand hygiene culture to improve patient care and prevent infections. Let us help you. It’s the simplest thing you can do.
Do the WAVE - The U. S. Department of Health and Human Services and the Partnership for Patients have developed a new campaign to encourage family caregivers to “Do the WAVE” to help prevent healthcare-associated infections (HAIs). The key components of the strategy are to embed hand hygiene as an integral part of the culture in the healthcare facility and continue to evaluate and improve the reliability of hand hygiene.

It’s Okay to Ask Me If I’ve Washed My Hands – Join a Qsource-sponsored project
created to provide tools for healthcare providers to develop a peer-enforced hand
hygiene culture, infrastructure and practices. Our goal is to create a culture that
encourages healthcare staff to remind each other about hand hygiene practices to
make compliance the rule, rather than the exception. To learn more about this
