5.5. Being Good HANDDISINFECTION YEARS Sterillium ® Protect yourself and others with increased handhygiene International Day of Handhygiene 5.5.2020 Clean and safe care starts with you Your good deeds in the limelight HARTMANN supports World Hand Hygiene Day You can use our free poster in your facility, for example, to showcase the best practice (your good deeds) of you and your colleagues. The self- adhesive notes are intended to be useful little everyday tools. They carry a positive message but also provide room for messages to your colleagues. Using the four-page questionnaire about hand hygiene, we can help you to find out how you can increase hand hygiene compliance in your facility: what problems do your colleagues see regarding this issue? What stands in the way of better compliance? What aids are needed in your facility? International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife The brochure is intended to be placed in staff common rooms. It contains interesting facts about Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing. On the occasion of her 200th birthday, the WHO declared 2020 the ‘International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife’. The information in the brochure makes it clear: nurses and midwives and the services they provide are part of a fine tradition. They form the backbone of the healthcare system and are needed more than ever. To achieve the goal of universal health coverage (UHC) worldwide by 2030, a total of 9 million nurses and midwives will be needed according to the WHO. Thanks for your services In this campaign HARTMANN wants to honour the work done by nurses and midwives and to ensure that they are shown greater appreciation. We know what you do and: Thank you for your Good Deeds! Credit where credit is due: 5 May is World Hand Hygiene Day. The focus of the campaign this year is on nurses and midwives. HARTMANN supports the World Health Organization (WHO) campaign with posters, self-adhesive notes, a leaflet and a questionnaire designed specially for the campaign. FORUM DISINFACTS 2/20 page 6
