“Perception of hand hygiene amongst healthcare workers in long term care settings”.

Ms. Hamaoui, an MPH candidate, was interested in healthcare workers’ opinions and perceptions surrounding hand hygiene. She looked at hand hygiene perceptions related to low risk activities such as, casual contact with the residents, including, checking vitals, shaking hands, giving hugs, as well as everyday environmental contact, including, answering call lights, adjusting bed rails, and transfers.
