Clean Hands Save Lives

(HORIZON) May 2, 2014 - Horizon Health Network will be celebrating National Hand Hygiene Day on May 5 by reminding visitors, patients and staff to clean their hands. The National Hand Hygiene Day campaign is an initiative of the Canadian Patient Safety Institute and coincides with a global initiative of the World Health Organization.

As part of this celebration, Horizon volunteers will be stationed at the entrance of its hospitals to direct visitors to the available alcohol-based hand rinse dispensers. Practicing proper hand hygiene is the easiest and most effective way of preventing the spread of infections in health-care facilities and is encouraged not only on May 5, but every day.

Together, we can help to stop the spread of infectious diseases.
