ABSTRACT
The article discusses the highlights of a study on the impact of hand hygiene on infection rates. Mark Rupp of the University of Nebraska Medical Center said the study is something of a cautionary tale, but is certainly should not be interpreted as hand hygiene is not important. Many variables affect transmission such as the amount of inoculum on the worker's hands and the status of the patient's immune system.
