What We Are Doing:
NPSG.07.01.01 - Comply with either the current Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) hand hygiene guidelines or the current World Health Organization (WHO) hand hygiene guidelines. PeaceHealth St John Medical Center is participating in the system wide Hand Hygiene Observation program, where managers, Directors, and Executive Leadership enter hand hygiene observation on-line directly for both washing in and washing out. In addition our departments not included in the system initiative conduct the same observations which we track, trend and use internally for compliance and PI purposes.
