Beginning Monday, Sept. 11, hand sanitizer dispensers for employees caring for C. diff patients must be marked appropriately. This sign reading "Stop, wash your hands!" and a red bouffant, which is available from Materials Management, should be placed on the hand sanitizer dispensers inside and outside C. diff rooms.
When a positive C. diff culture presents, it will be up to the nurse caring for the patient to ensure the hand sanitizers are addressed. Print a copy of the "Stop, wash your hands!" PDF, tape it to the front of the dispensers, and place a red bouffant over the dispenser. The infection preventionist will monitor the progress of the new process.
