Hand Washing
  • Hand Washing
  • Washing your hands is the single most important
    action you can take to prevent the transmission
    of diseases.
  • Pathogens (germs that cause disease) generally do
    not penetrate intact skin.

3
Hand Washing
  • Hands should be washed
  • After exposure to body fluids
  • After removal of gloves
  • Any time hands become dirty.
  • Before leaving a contaminated work area.
  • After contact with a specimen or test procedure.
  • After using the restroom.

Hand Washing
  • How to properly wash your hands
  • Avoid wearing rings other than a plain band.
    Remove your wristwatch or push it up to the
    middle of your forearm.
  • Stand before the sink, keeping your hands and
    clothing away from the sink surface.
  • Turn on the water and adjust the temperature to
    warm.

5
Hand Washing
  • How to properly wash your hands (cont)
  • Wet your hands and wrists thoroughly under the
    running water.
  • Keep your hands and forearms lower than your
    elbows to prevent water from flowing from the
    most to the least contaminated area.
  • Apply 3 to 5 ml of liquid soap to your hands and
    lather thoroughly. (If you must use bar soap,
    rinse it before and after you use it.)

6
Hand Washing
  • How to properly wash your hands (Cont)
  • Using plenty of lather and friction, wash your
    hands for 10 to 15 seconds. Vigorously wash the
    palms and backs of your hands, each finger, the
    areas between fingers, and your knuckles and
    wrists. Wash at least 1 inch above any area of
    possible contamination.
  • Clean under your fingernails.
  • Keeping your hands down, rinse your hands and
    wrists thoroughly.

7
Hand Washing
  • How to properly wash your hands (Cont)
  • Using a clean paper towel, blot your hands from
    the fingers toward your wrists and forearms.
  • Turn off the water if using a hand-operated
    faucet, cover it with a paper towel to avoid
    contaminating your hands.
  • Discard the paper towel in a proper receptacle
    after you open the bathroom door with the paper
    towel. Many people do not wash their hands and
    bathroom door handles carry germs.
