Joint Commission hand hygiene project makes progress

Accreditation Connection, November 5, 2010

The Joint Commission’s Target Solutions Tool™ (TST) launched in September has made progress in the area of hand hygiene. Over 700 hand hygiene projects are currently running, over 6,500 hand hygiene observations have been entered into the TST, and more than 2,500 download requests have been received so far for the tools and videos that the TST provides to support these projects.

The TST looks at measurement processes, barriers to success, and methods for implanting solutions, and was designed to smooth the process of solving healthcare’s most stubborn quality and safety issues.

The organization has teamed up with some of the top hospitals in the country to develop these solutions and is still seeking more.
