Engaging Culture to Change Handwashing Behavior

Mike Mann's picture

Behavior verification motivates compliance

The 5 steps of the HandsOn System are converted to action with a process that opens with collaborative Risk Assessment and closes with Decision Verification. Well designed handwash data collection provides much more than a number. It is the living report card on the commitments made by the providers chain of command, starting in the C-Suites and finishing at patient and resident bedsides. Handwashing reports communicate the pulse of the process and either confirm the decisions taken or expose variances. Corrective actions reset standards and process adjustments.

This graphic is provided to facilitate recruiting a cross-functional team to collaboratively assess the risk of current practices, set standards and agree the integrated handwashing process, complete with verification methods. This is a visualization to help set a course of continuous improvement and brand protection.
