“For my Integrative Learning Experience (ILE), I was lucky enough to be able to partner with Erlanger Health System’s Infection Prevention department. Among many other responsibilities, the department tracks hand hygiene data for multiple Erlanger hospitals. This data is important because it can relate to rates of hospital-acquired infections. I came into the department right as they were transitioning to a new online database to track hand hygiene compliance, so I created training materials to help the nurses navigate the system easily. The materials I created (a short video, an instructional document, and promotional items) walk users through the steps to enter a hand washing observation and will be featured on the homepage of the new database.”
