Hand hygiene education and individual feedback of hand hygiene frequency as well as technique
were effective in increasing hand hygiene frequency and improving nurses’ methodology scores
of hand hygiene.
The average rate of hygiene of the hand was raised from 46.8 percent before the sessions of
education to 71.4 percent after the first session of education and up to 64. Percent at the
observations made on the second group (P = 0001) (Chun et. al. 2015).
The mean for the methods of hand hygiene was 2.84 before the education conducted for the
group and it was raised to 3.65 and 3.89 at the first and second post education observations,
respectively (P = 0.001) (Chun et. al. 2015).
For nursing journals to contribute meaningful results to evidence-based practice,
appropriate statistical analysis and interpretation are essential (Cohn et. al. 2009).
Data are summarized using descriptive statistics. The data were skewed to the left
(skewness = −.9367) with a Kolmogorov–Smirnov test of p = <.01, leading us to reject
the normality assumption. Each variable requires analysis (Cohn et. al. 2009).
However, among studies with complicated designs, for example, nested case-control
studies (n = 53), only 42% (22/53) of the reviews used appropriate analytical methods to
address complex designs (Cohn et. al. 2009).
Hand hygiene is one of the most natural means through which healthcare-associated
It eliminates the microorganisms which are acquired in the process of nursing care of the
patients with an infection by the organisms.
Hand washes equally aids in preventing the cross – infection that could occur between the
patients and the healthcare workers.
The knowledge of hand washing is essential and useful to the Healthcare workers.
