HAND DRYING – “First do no harm”

Highlights of multisite study across three countries to be presented at RAI/Interclean 2018

Professor Mark Wilcox MD, consultant microbiologist, Leeds Teaching hospitals, UK will present highlights from his latest research study into washroom contamination at Interclean 2018 in Amsterdam.

Hand hygiene is one of the most important components of infection prevention and our study findings demonstrate that hospitals offering paper towels as the means of hand drying in washrooms are making the smart choice in minimising the spread of infection,” explains Professor Wilcox.

His presentation “Hand drying – first do no harm” will take place on Thursday 17 May from 13.00 to 14.00 on the Interclean stage during the Symposium at RAI/Interclean 2018.
