This worrying study in the USA of a 63% compliance rate for hygiene procedures is worrying after all the superbug problems we have seen in the last 10 years.

We all know that hospitals contain many patients all of who have differing conditions.  Infection is one of them.  Poor hygiene practice should be a thing of the past but in some places the simple message has not hit home.  

There is a reason why some Health Systems have been able to eradicate super bugs from their hospitals and other not.  Universal hygiene procedures can save lives and save health systems millions.  

It may seem simple and maybe it is, but success lies with the individuals being disciplined in their approach.  Lets hope future studies show and improvement.
