Handwashing Responsibilities in Healthcare
For a complete list of accreditations for this course, please see the accreditation information box below the author’s bio.  All states (with the exception of Hawaii) recognize our courses for accredited continuing nursing education, CNE, contact hours.

This online continuing education course is designed for nurses, nurse’s aides and healthcare workers in all healthcare settings since it is the single most important responsibility in preventing and reducing infections and disease transmission in all areas of patient care.  As a healthcare worker or professional you have heard about handwashing over and over in every orientation and in-service related to infection control, yet infection rates of MRSA, C-Diff, and other highly contagious infections continue to rise at an alarming rate.  This course will introduce a new perspective beyond basic infection control and hand hygiene, as a necessary part of patient safety and the healthcare provider’s responsibility.
