University of California San Francisco Health: Hand Hygiene using Alcohol Based Hand Rub (ABHR)

October 12, 2019 0 By Stanley Isaacs


How to clean your hands
with alcohol-based hand rub, or ABHR. Apply one measure of ABHR. Rub your hands with ABHR
between your fingers, around and under your
fingernails, fingertips, and backs of your hands, your
wrists and palms until dry. It takes at least 20 seconds
to apply to all surfaces and to ensure the ABHR is dry. Clean your hands when you
exit the patient care zone. Use only the hand care products
supplied by the hospital, as they are formulated
to work together for the integrity of your skin. [MUSIC PLAYING]
