Reflection discussion: Search the internet for a 4 moments of Hand Hygiene poster that you feel explains it the best and could be used in your workplace. Explain why you chose the poster.
I feel this poster is more clear to visitors then following arrows or steps.
I feel like this one would be the most relevant as it refers to our province, and has short and expanded forms for anybody interested , despite being a bit outdated.
I think the arrows in these posters are very helpful. Not only does it describe what to do when but it visually gives direction going into, within, and leaving the environment. For a visual/tactile learner such as myself, applying those directions to me physically involving myself in the environment sticks better and allows me to be more compliant, and remember the moments better.
I choose this poster since its easy and self explanatory.
I like this poster as it clearly demonstrates in the picture the moments of hand hygiene. It is simple to read and understand for the PSWs I supervise in the retirement facilities.
I chose this poster because it shows a real caregiver relationship. Browsing through the posters online many of them are one sthat have been posted over the last two years. The blue backgrounds have been used where I work. I think the hand hygiene posters could be in brighter colours, relatable images and with clear printed messages in bigger font.
The posters have become really common place over the last decade. Handwashing audits and regular education/training are important to keep awareness present in daily care and activity.
I chose this poster because where I work we are over 60% children. I think keeping it simple and visually appealing is effective. When we practice hand washing, we make a song, or turn it into a game to make it fun. My hope is that we are giving the young ones building blocks to continue the same healthy practices as they grow.
Hi everyone I choose this poster because it explains the moments with rational as to why and when. I think this is essential for visitors who are not in medical field and may not understand some medical terms or images.
I chose this poster as it is already in place in our facility, and has been widely understood since being brought into policy. It is clear, identifies the 4 moments and provides rationale and examples.
I think this one is clear and and instructional.
I chose this one as I think it clearly explains when hand hygiene should be done as well as explaining the rationale behind it in understandable terms.
I picked this poster because I think the poster is simple and clear. there are also additional information/reminders at the bottom.
I chose this poster because it is already being used in our hospital and it gives a detailed explanation as to why these 4 moments of hand hygiene are necessary. It also provides a clear picture that any lay person would understand.
