Diseases Spread by Not Washing Hands
7/26/2012
Many viruses and bacteria infect people only when they enter the nose or mouth. People with diseases transmitted via the fecal-oral route can spread the disease to nearby objects or food if they don't wash their hands well after using the toilet.
Airborne illnesses spread through droplets in the air, which land on nearby objects. Touching an infected object transmits germs to your hands; touching your nose or mouth with your unwashed hand infects you with the virus or bacteria.

In healthcare settings, hand hygiene can prevent potentially fatal infections from spreading from patient to patient and from patient to healthcare worker and vice-versa.

Pedagogy’s online course “Handwashing Responsibilities in Healthcare” will identify the #1 defense in transmittable infections. This course is designed for nurses, nurse’s aides and healthcare workers in all healthcare settings since it is the single most important responsibility in preventing and reducing infections and disease transmission in all areas of patient care.  As a healthcare worker or professional you have heard about handwashing over and over in every orientation and in-service related to infection control, yet infection rates of MRSA, C-Diff, and other highly contagious infections continue to rise at an alarming rate.  This course will introduce a new perspective beyond basic infection control and hand hygiene, as a necessary part of patient safety and the healthcare provider’s responsibility.
