Hand washing: There’s an award for that?

YES! There is! And our residents won the award for the month of September 2015!

At Regions Hospital, we work hard to foster a culture of accountability. A current patient safety initiative encourages respectful reminders to communicate the importance of hand hygiene. Each month, a rotating plaque is awarded to the department or patient care unit who excels in this communication around hand washing. In September, the Regions Hospital Residents and Fellows received the award. Great job!
