Improving Hand Hygiene Compliance in Patient Care

Analyze improving hand hygiene compliance in patient care in the hospital setting.

How can nurses use strategies to improve compliance with hand hygiene recommendations and determine whether an increase in hand hygiene compliance can reduce infection rates? Describe the practice problem in your own words and formulate your PICOT question. Outline one or two evidence-based solutions you will consider for the trial project. Identify care standards, practice guidelines, or protocols that may be in place to support your intervention planning.
