Hand Hygiene Policy & Procedure

Infection Prevention & Control

AHS supports hand hygiene practices that enhance the health and safety of all AHS representatives, patients, and visitors. Proper hand hygiene is the single most important practice in reducing the transmission of microorganisms and the incidence of infection, and promotes health and safety in an AHS setting.

Hand hygiene is a shared responsibility: staff, medical staff, Volunteers, patients, and visitors to AHS are supported to encourage one another to perform hand hygiene.

The AHS Hand Hygiene Policy and Procedure have been updated.
