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.

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 d
