Bareen International Hospital celebrates Hand Hygiene Day 2019

Sunday, May 5th, 2019

Bareen International Hospital supports World Health Organization (WHO) initiatives as we celebrate Hand Hygiene Day with this year's theme "Clean care for all - it's in your hands".

Bareen's Infection Control team -  led by Ms. Saumya Korah, Infection Control Nurse, conducted education sessions with face-to-face lectures for Bareen patients, guests, and staff members.  Campaign ambassadors, including Bareen's Senior Management Team, wore campaign t-shirts and went around the hospital to help create awareness about the global movement.  The campaign became memorable with photoshoot and Facebook live coverage during the event.   

Infection Prevention and Control, including hand hygiene, is critical to achieve universal health coverage as it is a practical and evidence-based approach with demonstrated impact on quality of care and patient safety across all levels of the health system.
