Patient Safety Tool: 'This Is Your Hand Unwashed' Poster

Share on Facebook

Johns Hopkins Medicine has developed a number of resources to help improve hand hygiene at its organizations.

 

One such resource is a colorful poster contrasting a normal looking hand to a hand that is unwashed and what different bacteria and diseases could be present on it as a result, along with the message, "This Is Your Hand UNWASHED!"

The poster then provides simple guidance for what to do when washing hands using soap and water or when using alcohol-based hand cleaners.

 

It ends with the reminder for its staff members to "Wash Your Hands."
