17438. Improving Hand Hygiene Compliance Among Healthcare Workers in the Icu. Drawing on a review of relevant health sciences literature on the importance of good hand hygiene (hand washing, hand disinfection), this essay uses an evidence-based approach to developing a plan to improve compliance of hand hygiene among nurses and other healthcare workers in an Intensive Care Unit (ICU). Discusses the established role of healthcare workers’ hands in the transmission of hospital-acquired infections, considers the relative advantages and disadvantages of various hand hygiene methods, explores reasons behind the low rate of hand hygiene among healthcare workers, and discusses ways to overcome barriers to improve compliance. Also provides a nursing-based definition of the concept of evidence-based practice. KEYWORDS: hand washing, nosocomial infection, hospital-acquired infections, hand hygiene, health workers nursing prevention. 10 pages, 43 footnotes, 27 bibliographic sources. 2,313 words.   $70
