Prevent HAI’s by closing knowledge gaps. Make staff aware of where their cleaning responsibilities lie. Limit the risk of failure on HEI inspection. Daily documented evidence of cleaning tasks.

Audit Results • Pie Chart 1: Responses by staff via voting buttons. • Question asked of staff via e-mail, 60 staff were emailed 48 responded using voting buttons. • “In your opinion, since starting the cleaning matrix, have cleanliness standards within the department improved?”




Yes No Maybe

Training Self directed learning. • Ensure Learn Pro mandatory modules for HAI prevention are current • Complete the Stand alone Hand Hygiene Learn Pro module.
