dc.description.abstractHand hygiene is a vital intervention in infection control in healthcare settings. Healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) are a significant concern in the hospital setting, leading to increased patient morbidity and mortality, extended hospital stays, and substantial healthcare costs (World Health Organization, 2020). In this context, this research seeks to address the following key research questions: How does the implementation of an enhanced hand hygiene intervention program impact the hand hygiene compliance rates among healthcare workers in acute care settings? What is the relationship between improved hand hygiene compliance and the incidence of healthcare associated infections in these units? By exploring these questions, this study aims to provide valuable insights into the effectiveness of handwashing practices in a hospital setting and contribute to the ongoing efforts to reduce HAIs and improve patient safety.
