Explanation

Explanation - Infection Control, Infection Control, Hospital Acquired Infections (HAI), Hand Hygiene, Videos, Inpatient Hand Hygiene Opportunity Videos, Physical Therapist is Assisting a Patient to Ambulate in the Hallway

Focus

Hand hygiene was performed correctly using alcohol gel after patient contact. When a healthcare worker assists a patient to ambulate in the hallway, both the healthcare worker and patient should perform hand hygiene prior to leaving the patient room. When hand hygiene is performed in this manner, it is unlikely contamination of the hand rails in the hallway will occur.
