Welcome to WashingHandsSavesLives.org.

In 2005, Novant Health, one of the top 10 integrated health systems in the country, initiated a system-wide hand hygiene program designed to save lives through the reduction of hospital-acquired infections.

Three years later, Novant Health has achieved 99 percent hand hygiene compliance and reduced MRSA infections by 53 percent – the equivalent of saving 249 patients from enduring the complications of MRSA.

Your organization can promote a culture of hand hygiene and make people accountable for their behavior by using the protocol and promotional materials on this site.

Start saving lives now.
Novant Health and Luquire George Andrews are proud partners in the fight against MRSA infections.
