Award-winning hand hygiene video tracks healthcare workers' hands throughout the day

A hand hygiene video from Winston-Salem, N.C.-based Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center won the sixth annual Film Festival at the 43rd Annual Conference of the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology.

The video, titled "Stop the Spread of Infection: It's in Our Hands," tracks all of the people and surfaces healthcare personnel touch in one day, from the hand's point of view. It beat out Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center's hand hygiene video parodying Taylor Swift's "Shake it Off" and a video from Children's Hospital Colorado parodying the song "Watch Me."

"Seeing hand hygiene from a hand's perspective was a unique take on a topic that is vital to preventing the spread of infection," said Debra Johnson, BSN, RN, chair of the APIC 2016 Annual Conference. "In a given day we may not think about all of the different — and often unclean — items our hands come in contact with. Wake Forest Baptist's winning video is a great addition to the Film Festival winner's circle and is a useful tool to drive home the importance of hand hygiene."
