Effect of hand sanitizer location on hand hygiene compliance

The infrastructure of product supply is important to gain better compliance (dispenser positioning, availability & function)

In this study, the correlation of HHC with facility design and dispenser localisation was assessed. It was shown that HHC can be influenced by the visibility and accessibility of hand disinfectant dispensers. Therefore, proper localisation of dispensers should be an important part of multimodal interventions to improve hand hygiene.
