October 15, 2019 is Global Handwashing Day!
While proper handwashing should be a top priority all year long, it’s important to take this day to make sure your team is doing everything they can to keep themselves and their clients healthy.
It’s so easy, yet . . .
- Nearly 99,000 people die in the US each year from healthcare-related infections. That’s more deaths than breast and prostate cancer combined
- On average, you come into contact with 300 surfaces every 30 minutes, exposing you to 840,000 germs.
- That’s why 80% of all infectious diseases are spread by hands.
What can we do?
Are your caregivers prepared to keep the clients they serve germ-free and healthy throughout the year?
