Intervention strategy to improve hand hygiene in small animal hospitals
In small animal hospitals, it can happen that animals become infected with multidrug-resistant organisms during their stay. This can be avoided with improved infection prevention. In human medicine, extensive instruments are available for monitoring and promoting hand hygiene. Today, it is unclear whether these instruments can be transferred to veterinary medicine. With the aim of developing suitable instruments for small animal hospitals, we used the first three steps of our approach in this project.
