The Hand Hygiene Resource Center — a project of the Saint Raphael Healthcare System and John M. Boyce, MD, in New Haven, Conn. — offers a free, downloadable checklist of considerations when healthcare providers are selecting hand rubs.

A wide range of variables should be factored into hand rub selection, including feedback from nurses and other front-line personnel, in-vitro antimicrobial activity, drying characteristics, interaction with glove powder and more.

Download the hand rub selection checklist (DOC) for use in your facility.
