Staff Education Tool: ASC Quality Collaboration's Hand Hygiene Self-Assessment Tool

The ASC Quality Collaboration offers a free, downloadable tool to help ambulatory surgery centers understand how CMS surveyors evaluate hand hygiene.

The tool is an exact replica of the assessment CMS surveyors use to evaluate ASCs' hand hygiene practices. ASC Quality Collaboration notes that, unless otherwise indicated, a "No" response to any of the listed questions will be cited as a deficient practice.
