CDC Launches Clean Hands Count Campaign
CDC has launched a hand hygiene campaign for health care providers, patients, and their loved ones called Clean Hands Count. The campaign aims to:
- Improve health care provider adherence to CDC hand hygiene recommendations.
- Address the myths and misperceptions about hand hygiene.
- Empower patients to play a role in their care by asking or reminding health care providers to clean their hands.
Patients may be at risk of getting an infection while they are being treated for something else. The science is clear: Clean hands protect patients and health care providers from dangerous and deadly infections.
