Abstract: The importance of hands in the transmission of nosocomial infection has been world wide admitted. However, it is difficult to induce this behavior in health-care workers. The aim of the present work was to point out the importance of hand bacteria colonization, the influence of hand washing and of patient physical examination. One hundred health-care workers were randomly divided in two groups: Group A without hand washing previous to patient physical examination or handling (PPE); group B with hand washing pr… Show more

“…Tangential support to this argument can be gleaned from the literature [11,29,34,43,70,75,84,87,89,92,100,104,125]. The hands of physicians are a known link in the transmission of nosocomial pathogens [70].…”

“…The hands of physicians are a known link in the transmission of nosocomial pathogens [70]. In the absence of gloves, there is a considerable increase in bacterial contamination of healthcare workers' hands after patient contact [75,87,100]. Numerous studies have investigated the rates of hand contamination after patient care, and hand contamination may occur even if gloves are worn [11,29,34,43,75,84,87,92,101,125].…”

“…A cada vez que se aumentam os números de infecções hospitalares em uma instituição de saúde, surge a dúvida se a mesma está sendo executada corretamente, pois na literatura encontra-se uma alta freqüência de não execução ou execução inadequada desta técnica pelos profissionais de saúde (33)(34)(35)(36)(37)(38)(39)(40)(41) .…”

“…A falta de rigor com as práticas de controle de infecção, principalmente no que se refere à adesão a HM, tem sido demonstrada em diversos estudos, que relatam taxas de adesão inferiores a 60% em diferentes realidades de assistência à saúde (O'BOYLE, HENLY, LARSON, 2001;GOPAL et al, 2002;HARBARTH et al, 2002;HUGONNET, PERNEGER, PITTET, 2002;PITTET, 2005;WHITBY et al, 2007;HASS, LARSON, 2008;RUEF, 2009;CAMARGO et al, 2009;ATIF et al, 2009;HOMSTED, 2009;HAKKO et al, 2011 (LARSON, 1999;NOGUERAS et al, 2001;CDC, 2002;ELLIOT, 1992 (SETO, 1995;LEVIN, 1999;GODIN et al, 2000;GIROU et al, 2008;BRAUN, KUSEK, LARSON, 2009;FERREIRA et al, 2009;HOWARD et al, 2009;ROCHA et al, 2009;TENÍAS et al, 2009;HAKKO et al, 2011 A adesão ao procedimento de HM em estabelecimentos de assistência à saúde é um problema que merece ser analisado do ponto de vista individual e organizacional. Deste modo, romper com as dificuldades de adesão à HM é um desafio emergente, e apesar da expressiva evolução tecnológica ainda não se ultrapassou a etapa inicial da conscientização pessoal e organizacional quanto à efetividade desta prática nos cenários de assistência (SETO, 1995;LEVIN, 1999;GODIN et al,2000;LARSON et al, 2000;O'BOYLE, HENLY, LARSON, 2001;GOPAL et al, 2002;PITTET, 2005;WHITBY et al, 2007;GIROU et al, 2008;…”
