The transmission of pathogens most often occurs via the contaminated hands of healthcare personnel (HCP). Accordingly, hand hygiene is one of the most important infection prevention measures to reduce the risk of healthcare-associated infections (HAIs). Oral healthcare facilities are accountable for establishing a system in which oral HCP have the knowledge, competence, time, and tools to practice hand hygiene; and oral HCP have the duty to perform hand hygiene – perfectly and every time.
