Safe Healthcare Blog: What You Should Know about Hand Hygiene
Clean hands can protect patients and healthcare providers from dangerous and deadly infections, but studies show that healthcare providers do not practice hand hygiene every time they should. CDC's new Clean Hands Count campaign answers common questions CDC receives related to hand hygiene, from technique to caring for patients with C. difficile.
Clean Hands Count Campaign materials are now available for order. Visit CDC-INFO on Demand (http://wwwn.cdc.gov/pubs/CDCInfoOnDemand.aspx?ProgramID=31) to order free printed copies.

Alliant Quality, the Medicare Quality Innovation Network - Quality Improvement Organization (QIN-QIO) for Georgia and North Carolina, is inviting all nursing homes to participate in “SPACE” (Southern Partners Action Collaborative for Excellence), a learning and action network designed to focus on the use of quality and performance improvement practices. The practices are designed to focus on person-centered care, share best practices and learn from one another while continually using data to drive care improvement. Opportunities for improvement locally, regionally and within the state will be identified based on state and regional data. “SPACE” will coordinate and integrate with other Learning and Action Networks (LANs) operating in Georgia and North Carolina to reduce Healthcare-Associated Infections and to improve Transitions of Care whenever possible. Additionally, the Collaborative will align and coordinate efforts with partners and stakeholders to avoid and eliminate duplication of efforts throughout the contract.
To learn more about the nursing home associations in each state, visit the Georgia Health Care Association (GHCA), NC Health Care Facilities Association (NCHCFA) or our events page for more information.
