    Know the truth to protect yourself and protect your pagents

    Truth:

    • Alcohol-based hand sanitizer is more effective and less drying than using soap and water.

    • Using alcohol-based hand sanitizer does NOT cause antibiotic resistance.

    • Alcohol-based hand sanitizer does not kill C. difficile, but it is still the overall recommended method for hand hygiene practice.

    • Some healthcare providers miss certain areas when cleaning their hands.

    • The amount of product you use matters.

    • Glove use is not a substitute for cleaning your hands. Dirty gloves can soil your hands.

    • On average, healthcare providers perform hand hygiene less than half of the times they should.
