Dear Colleagues, Last week Michael Gardam sent out the results, by unit and site, of our hand hygiene program which is now an average of 80% for Toronto General Hospital, Toronto Western Hospital and Princess Margaret Hospital for the year. And, in the month of February, the average was 83%.
I want to thank each one of you for taking on the target of 80% hand hygiene compliance on our inpatient units. This is a significant factor in keeping our patients safe and means that we have achieved our goal on the balanced scorecard for the year. Of course, reaching our goal means that we'll need to set a stretch goal for next year and the Infection Prevention and Control (IPAC) team will have a large role in that, but ultimately our success in this area comes down to each and every person at UHN.
As Toronto Rehab joined us half way through the year, they were not included in our goal setting for 2011-12, but will be this year and the IPAC team will be working hand hygiene on all sites.
Again – my thanks for your work in this area and keep it up. Our patients and their families are counting on it.
