Hand Hygiene


Hand hygiene is one of the major cornerstones in infection control.   Many cite the origin of this single effective practice to come from the Hungarian physician Ignaz Semmelweis, who discovered that the incidence of pueperal fever could be drastically reduced by hand disinfection with chlorinated lime solutions in obstetric clinics in the year 1847.   Since then, more and more scientific evidence has proven that transmission of various infectious diseases could be reduced or prevented if we make an effort to keep our hands clean.
