WDHB takes home top hand hygiene award
Whanganui District Health Board (WDHB) has scooped the Hand Hygiene Quality Improvement Award 2014 for a DHB with fewer than 300 acute inpatient beds, or fewer than 1750 hand hygiene moments for national hand hygiene auditing.
When congratulating WDHB hand hygiene coordinator Ruth Foulkes and her team this week, WDHB director of nursing Sandy Blake said they had all worked extremely hard to improve hand hygiene performance in Wanganui Hospital and in health facilities throughout the WDHB district. 
Meanwhile, Mrs Foulkes says she was delighted with the win because “the Hand Hygiene Quality Improvement Awards recognise successful hand hygiene improvement efforts to date, plus a DHB’s quality improvement planning efforts for the next 12 months”.
