Hand Hygiene: the most important infection control measure

The McGill University health Centre (MUHC) has developed a comprehensive Hand Hygiene Program that involves making sure we have access to sinks and alcohol hand rub, systematic auditing of practice throughout the organization, education, role modeling, leadership and communication.
