Staff Education Tool: Sample Hospital Hand Hygiene Policies

The Massachusetts Coalition for the Prevention of Medical Errors provides two free, downloadable hand hygiene policies developed by Massachusetts hospitals.


The policies were developed by and used in New England Baptist Hospital and Cooley Dickinson Hospital.


While the sample policies provided by the Massachusetts Coalition for the Prevention of Medical Errors are a few years old, they provide a framework which other organizations can use to develop and adapt their own hand hygiene policies.


Download the New England Baptist Hospital policy (doc) and Cooley Dickinson Hospital policy (doc) for use by your organization.
