Hand Hygiene

Often referred to as a pioneer in hand hygiene compliance measurement, Dr. McGuckin and the McGuckin Methods International team are a driving force in hand hygiene compliance monitoring, developing and proving methodology that is effective at gathering data for team feedback in hand hygiene performance.

Several hundred hospitals in the USA and abroad have implemented the program, and The Joint Commission monograph on hand hygiene compliance includes several different versions of the McGuckin program, within their recommended methods to overcome the challenges of monitoring hand hygiene adherence.

We have detailed this program methodology in several peer-reviewed scientific articles and abstracts, and it is applicable in any type or size of heatlhcare facility.
