Have you washed your hands?

Given that infection control is a key issue in dialysis units, and that antimicrobial resistance is an international threat, why then do we not routinely teach all centre-based dialysis patients to wash their hands when they come for dialysis?  Clean hands Save lives  http://www.taggcleanhands.com

Maybe I am wrong - maybe this is standard practice on your unit.  Please let me  know
