Suggestions… / What you’ll need…

Stick it to Me

  • Give providers stickers (multi-coloured dot stickers work well)
  • When a provider sees another provider clean their hands properly, place a sticker on his/her shirt, ID card, ect.
  • At the end of the day the participant with the most stickers wins

STOP! Clean Your Hands Day Display

  • A display board (e.g. Bristol board or bulletin board)
  • A table (don’t forget to book space at your site)
  • A high traffic area (you want to attract as much attention as possible)
  • Creatively decorate the display by incorporating the free package contents that you received by registering for the event (stickers, bookmarks and newsletters)
  • Hand out fact sheets on the importance of hand hygiene.  Click here to access printable fact sheets.
  • Give out promotional items such as pens, badge holders and t-shirts from our online store or educational materials such as 4 Moments Cards, Human Factors Toolkits, Patient and Family Guides and more from our order form.
  • Energetic volunteers to share information with passersby to discuss the importance of hand hygiene and to give out promotional items to interested patients and staff
  • You may consider offering a door prize in order to attract people to your booth. You’ll need small sheets of paper for people to write their information on and a box to collect the ballots and to use for the draw.

Paper Bag Lunch Session

  • Gather employees together from your site to discuss the importance of hand hygiene
  • Bring in a speaker, have employees give presentations or invite a patient or family member to share a story related to their experience with infection prevention

Hand Cleaning Tutorial

  • Bring attention to all of the hand cleaning stations around your site
  • Do demonstrations on the proper way to clean your hands (washing and rubbing techniques)

Decorating Challenge

  • Create a team challenge to decorate hand cleaning stations around the site
  • This challenge will draw attention to the hand cleaning stations throughout the day
  • (Decorating can be as simple as adding stickers and inspirational sayings. e.g. “Give yourself a high five if you practice optimal hand hygiene!”)
  • A winner can be awarded by popular vote or by electing a display judge
