Hand Hygiene

MultiCare is dedicated to hand hygiene through initiatives and the “gel-in, gel-out” program. In 2009 MultiCare saw a 112% compliance rate for hand hygiene which kept out patients and staff safe from spreading and acquiring infections.

We measure actual hand hygiene product used in all inpatient units based on hand hygiene opportunities. Meeting this goal is the 100% mark.
