Contact precautions linked to provider hand hygiene
Contact precautions increased compliance with hand hygiene upon exit of isolated patients' rooms, researchers reported. Contact precautions are infection control measures that require patients to be isolated in their own room or grouped with patients colonized or infected with the same multidrug-resistant organism. Healthcare workers and visitors must wear gloves, gowns and other protective equipment while with a patient on contact precautions.
