Well, Tuesday was the World Health Organisations’s global day for action on hand hygiene in health care and we got very involved here at Glasgow Caledonian University.
We had a display in the main foyer of the health building on campus to showcase the research we have carried out in this field and to teach the 6 step hand hygiene technique to passers-by. They then got to test their “performance” with the glow box and were then asked to “bin a bug” from the big hand (see photo below). However, most of them didn’t want to bin our pom pom friends and instead took them home.
We also got to show off our official Guinness World Record Certificate and got loads of selfies with the WHO Twitter hashtag, #safeHANDS -go to our Twitter account to see the photos @SHIPGCU
