Abstract

This study established a method for collecting hand hygiene (HH) performance data based on behavioral drivers (inherent or elective) that can be used by infection preventionists (IPs) to improve practice. Further, we explored the influence that task and setting has on HH behavior. A significant effect was found between task and setting that has implications for improving the usefulness of HH measurement, with positive feedback reported regarding the new measurement method.
