To: Sarah Noble From: Date: Re: Just Wash Your Hands Hi Sarah, Here is an essay written to increase the hand washing compliance rate. As the Centers for disease control and prevention stated, hand washing is the most important means of preventing the spread of infections. Improving compliance to 100% is vital for patients’ health. Hopefully, the information I provided is useful and put into a pamphlet that can be sent out to student nurse and volunteers. Sincerely,

Let’s give patients a clean hand In the mid-1800s, approximately a quarter of the women in Europe died from what was commonly called “childbed fever” when delivering babies in hospitals. Dr.Semmelweis found that when health care workers washed their hands before delivering babies, it prevented death in postpartum women. Although the suggestion was not recognized at the time, eventually it was proved that he was correct. (Western university, 19) Also, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) stated that washing hands is one of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of diseases and infections (Western university, 20) In this essay, I will explain that washing hands is essential because of the infection risk for patients and all hospital workers. Patients’ health is closely related to health care practitioners and volunteers in hospital. As student nurse and volunteers, you will come in contact with patients everyday. All of you want to help improve your patients’ healthy, so washing your hand is a good way to prevent the spread of illnesses and protect your patients.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
