The observation of the hand hygiene compliance is the so-called “gold standard”. However, it is still mainly done with paper and pen by infection control nurses. The transfer and the evaluation of the data is very complex. Consequently, the observed health care worker have to wait until they get any feedback.
Hence, we have developed the “5 Moments App“. By using the tablet infection control nurses can plan, do and evaluate the compliance observation on one device. As a consequence, direct feedback to the observed staff is possible.
