In 2019, Leapfrog is asking hospitals to report on their adherence to hand hygiene best practices identified by Leapfrog's National Hand Hygiene Expert Panel and adopted in part from the World Health Organization’s Hand Hygiene Self-Assessment Framework.
These new practices will focus on the following topics:
- Training and education
- Infrastructure for supporting hand hygiene
- Monitoring and feedback
- Additional questions for fact-finding only
The new hand hygiene practices will not be scored or publicly reported in 2019.
