What are we doing to improve?

As this can be a patient perception issue, Piedmont McDuffie takes action to address patients' concerns around hand hygiene in different ways. Piedmont McDuffie monitors hand hygiene by direct observation within each clinical area and provides direct and immediate feedback to our physicians and employees on how our patients are rating their hand hygiene compliance. We have implemented and focused training centered on The World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines within our organization to educate and improve overall hand hygiene compliance. Piedmont McDuffie has posted extensive signage throughout our campuses to reinforce and promote the importance of hand hygiene by everyone in our organization.
