St. Joseph’s Villa Staff – Hand Hygiene Infection Control Champions!

SJV Hand Hygiene Infection Control Champions! May 2016

May 18, 2016 – St. Joseph’s Villa (Gardenway) staff receive the annual “Most Improved” and the “Best Overall” Hand Hygiene Infection Control Championship Award with a 99% compliance rate.

The evidence based Just Clean Your Hands program, launched by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care in 2008 which was developed to help reduce health care-associated infections, has become a friendly competition between St. Joseph’s Villa, St. Joseph’s Continuing Care Centre and Villa St. Gabriel Villa staff.

St. Joseph’s Continuing Care Centre’s level 1 and 2 tied for second place – best overall with a compliance rate of 96%.  St. Joseph’s Villa’s Hillcrest and Sunnyside neighbourhoods tied for 3rd place with a compliance rate of 95%

St. Joseph’s Villa’s Lakeview and Sunnyside neighbourhoods tied for second place for most improved.  St. Joseph’s Villa’s Hillcrest neighbourhood came in third place.

Congratulations to our winners and thank you to all staff for “Just Cleaning Your Hands!” stated Jo-Anne Palkovits, President and CEO, St. Joseph’s Health Centre.   Practicing hand hygiene is a simple yet effective way to prevent infections.  Cleaning your hands can prevent the spread of germs, including those that are resistant to antibiotics and are becoming more difficult, if not impossible, to treat.  Over the past years, our organizations have implemented strategies to increase our hand hygiene compliance rates.  The data demonstrates that our strategies have and continue to be very successful.
