Change to Department Selection Methodology
To standardise data collection across all hospitals Hand Hygiene Australia (HHA) in association with the NHHI Advisory Committee have changed their department selection methodology. There is now one single option recommending all eligible departments be audited a minimum of once per year (ideally each National Audit Period) and at least 100-200 moments be collected per high risk area each year. Please click here to see the updated recommendations.
Please note that this is a recommendation, and that HHA ask organisations to start transitioning towards using this option from Audit 1 2018.
