Abstract

The purpose of this evidence-based practice project is to examine the compliance of health care providers' usage of effective hand hygiene vs. ineffective hand hygiene to decrease the spread of infection amongst patients during a hospitalization. A keyword search was conducted using the terms hand hygiene, preventing spread of infection, and health care hand hygiene compliance. By narrowing the results, 5 articles were found to support the topic. These included three descriptive studies and two quasi-experimental studies. Research supports health care providers reveal low compliance in effective hand hygiene, but through proper interventions and an increase in knowledge there reveals an increase in effective hand hygiene compliance amongst health care providers.
