Global Hand washing Day was on 15th October, and this year’s theme, “Unite for Universal Hand Hygiene,” called for coordinated action toward universal hand hygiene.
What we did at Fernandez…
- Community Outreach Activities for Children – Health Education on Importance of Handwashing and Distribution of Hand Hygiene Stickers was done at the Govt. Primary, Phool Bagh, and at Fernandez CDC, Madhapur.
- Departments of Housekeeping and Maintenance were engaged with discussions on the importance of hand hygiene.
- We also introduced Fixed Time Alarm Bell Technique as a method to improve hand hygiene compliance. Everyone on duty was requested to perform hand hygiene at 11:00 AM on 15th October.
- Skits / Dance performance by Nurses on the Importance of Handwashing
Heartfelt thanks to each one who participated and helped coordinate these events. We owe every bit of the success to you!
