Hand Hygiene Audit

In 2011, the HSE published a national protocol for measuring how good healthcare workers are at cleaning their hands for each of the WHO 5 moments of Hand Hygiene. This measurement is called a hand hygiene audit and the results are expressed as the percentage of times hands are cleaned when they should be. This ensures that hand hygiene is measured the same way in each hospital so that changes can be monitored over time.
