UW Radiology Wins Hand Hygiene Award With 100 Percent Compliance

Posted on April 2014

UW Radiology would like to thank the entire leadership and staff for their contribution to the Hand Hygiene Award, bestowed upon the department as a whole.

Radiology set a high bar for the rest of the hospital with a 100% compliance rate, despite nearly 400 observations of technologists, nurses, and doctors. This demonstrates the widespread commitment to patient safety that is characteristic of the department.

Staff can stop by the E3/366 front desk to admire the trophy, a symbol of Radiology’s promise to keep patients germ-free.
