The numbers are in: We cleaned over 10,000 pairs of hands across 11 Clean hands Challenge events in 2015. The southern Ontario event, powered by Germgo Media, traveled from St. Catharines to Peterborough and Toronto to Barrie in an initiative to educate and bring awareness to the importance of proper hand hygiene practices. Germgo welcomed new participants for 2015, including St. Joseph’s Health Centre, North York General, Southlake Hospital, Royal Victoria Hospital, and Markham Stouffville Hospital. The 2015 installment ran from October until December, in an effort to increase compliance during the beginning of the flu season.
More details on the 2016 Clean Hands Challenge will be released soon.
