Toronto Grace staff perform hand hygiene at the right time and the right moment.  Alcohol hand based rub (hand sanitizer) is located within arms reach for the health care provider. 

Increasing the hand hygiene compliance rate improves patient and staff safety, and is vital in decreasing hospital acquired infections.  We are pleased to report that its use at the Grace has become habit.  Our current hand hygiene overall compliance rate is 98% for April 2013 to January 2014. 

Congratulations to our staff on keeping our patients and yourselves safe!
