Abstract :

Healthcare-associated infections are estimated to cost the NHS approximately £1 billion a year. In addition to increased costs, each one of these infections means additional use of NHS resources, greater patient discomfort and a decrease in patient safety. Due to the growing burden of Health Care Associated Infections (HCAIs), superimposed by Multi-Drug Resistant (MDR) pathogen infections, Health Care Providers (HCPs) are reversing back to the basics of infection preventions by simple measures like hand hygiene. However, studies on hand hygiene compliance among healthcare workers have repeatedly shown poor compliance with hand hygiene. The aim of the present study is to see the compliance of local guideline in practice which was published on May 2016. Prospective data was collected over 2 weeks by observing the staff in first 2 weeks of April 2018. Within 2 weeks?? time, people from different staff groups were observed for 217 times. Advanced Nurse Practitioners (ANPs) achieved the highest targeted value on every aspect. To identify the reasons for poor hand hygiene practices we did a further survey and established three factors: Health staff related factors, clinical factors and behavioral factors. One of the reasons microbes have survived in nature is probably their simplicity: A simple genomic framework with genetic encryption of basic survival strategies. To tackle these microbes, human beings will have to follow basic and simple protocols of infection prevention. The health care practitioners need to brace themselves to inculcate the simple, basic and effective practice of hand hygiene in their daily patient care activities.
