Latest Alfred ICU Hand Hygiene audit cracks the 80% mark for the first time, exceeding the Department of Health KPI of 78% and  the internal target of 80% compliance

A huge amount of work has gone into achieving this result.  And it has been a real team effort.  Not only internally , but also trying to attain compliance from visiting medical teams.

Chris Sharp, one of our senior nurses has had a major role in this through ongoing education, constant reminders and sheer persistence.

Tim Leong, Deputy Director ICU and Head of Quality Improvement has been striving to reach this target, continuously getting us closer to the mark and his hard work cannot be over-estimated.

Of the 7 sentinel wards at The Alfred, we were one of 3 to exceed the target.
