Nominations for the Hand Hygiene New Zealand Quarterly Awards close on Friday 28 September.

The quarterly Hand Hygiene Awards recognise and acknowledge the hard work underway within District Health Boards throughout New Zealand by highlighting examples of excellence and success associated with the promotion of good hand hygiene practices, increased compliance rates, and the implementation of hand hygiene programmes.

There are three categories for nomination:

  • Hand hygiene coordinator of the quarter
  • Hand hygiene gold auditor of the quarter
  • Hand hygiene ward of the quarter.

If you know someone that deserves recognition (and a prize!) for their hard work and dedicated approach to improving hand hygiene, please make sure you submit a nomiation.

All it takes is a few minutes to fill out the nomination form and you could really brighten someone's day!

Winners will also be profiled in the next issue of The Clean Hands Chronicle, due out in November.
