Free Webinar on Helping Hospitals Control Healthcare-Associated Infections by Improving Hand Hygiene
Date:9/22/2009

ELM GROVE, Wis., Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- A free 40-minute webinar, Hand Washing for Healthcare Providers: A Critical Factor in HAI, is being sponsored by Compirion Healthcare Solutions, a hospital process improvement firm headquartered in Elm Grove, Wisconsin. Dates and times, along with registration information, can be found at the website www.compirion.com. Covered in the webinar are the main causes of non-compliance with hospital hand-washing protocols and proven, practical solutions that can be implemented house-wide. HAIs can be acquired by the patient at all points of care, so this important and timely webinar is critical to all levels of hospital staff, from C-Suites to frontline managers, physicians, nurses, clinicians and technicians, to food service and housekeeping.

In the presumably sterile environment of a hospital, diligence of staff washing their hands when moving from patient to patient can easily be taken for granted. Yet, according to The Joint Commission, hand-washing failures contribute to healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) that often lead to more serious illness, prolong hospital stays, induce long-term disability and contribute to nearly 100,000 deaths each year. HAIs cost U.S. hospitals $4 billion to $29 billion annually to combat, while the benefits of prevention range from $5.7 to $31 billion.

This webinar is presented by one of Compirion's top nurse clinicians, Clinical Consultant Joyce Jefferies, RN, MSN. Jefferies is currently wrapping up a house-wide improvement project at Duke University Hospital, where she worked with Inpatient units to improve outcomes. She was also instrumental in increasing Patient Satisfaction rankings to the 90th percentile.

Jefferies has over 14 years of experience providing and directing quality, patient-centered care in hospitals. Her background covers ICU, trauma and ER nursing. Prior to joining Compirion Healthcare as a Clinical Consultant, Jefferies was Clinical Nurse Director and Interim Nursing Director of Emergency Services at the Regional Medical Center at Memphis, in Tennessee. She holds an AD in nursing from Northwest Community College, a BSN from the University of Memphis, and an MSN from Union University. She is an active member of the American Nursing Association and the Tennessee Nurses Association.

Hand Washing for Healthcare Providers is the seventh in a series of free webinars being offered to help educate hospital executives, managers and clinicians in strategies for optimizing processes and procedures. Compirion's presenters are drawn from its pool of healthcare consultants, which includes registered nurses, former C-level executives, physicians, business managers and clinicians. The webinars are running through September and average about 45 minutes each, with a question-and-answer session at the end. According to Compirion management, "We are presenting this series of free webinars because we truly believe that efficiency in the hospital, especially the ED, not only saves time and money, it saves lives. The faster you can get a patient to treatment, the better the outcomes you can expect. It is the premise on which Compirion was founded."
