Chasing Zero: All Hands on Deck for Hand Hygiene

All Hands on Deck for Hand Hygiene!

Welcome to your online Chasing Zero Hand Hygiene Manager Toolkit. Here, you’ll find all the tools you need to get your team(s) on deck for focusing on hand hygiene – our first area of focus in support of our Chasing Zero journey.

We are asking ALL managers to select one of the following three activities by November 15 to get your department actively engaged in our hand hygiene efforts and our Chasing Zero journey. We’ll be tracking our participation rates using the entries made using this Web page – please be sure to make your selection by November 15.
