Hand Hygiene

SickKids has a comprehensive, evidence-based hand hygiene program in place. We study the practice of staff through direct observation on different units at different times of the day to better understand when and where improvements are required. We follow the practice and observation guidelines established by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-term Care. Learn more about the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care’s “Just clean your hands” campaign.
