Clean Hands are Healthy Hands

Also from the CDC: Hand Hygiene in Healthcare Settings.

Among other material, the page includes links to the "Guideline for Hand Hygiene in Healthcare Settings - 2002". From the site: "The hand hygiene guidelines were developed by the CDC's Healthcare Infection Control Practices Advisory Committee (HICPAC), in collaboration with the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America (SHEA), the Association of Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC), the Infectious Disease Society of America (IDSA). The hand hygiene guidelines are part of an overall CDC strategy to reduce infections in health care settings to promote patient safety."
