National Clean Hands Week

September 21-27 is National Clean Hands Week. Whether you work in the New Jersey elder care industry or not, it’s important always to be aware of the cleanliness of your hands. With cold and flu season just around the corner, we should all be especially careful about maintaining clean hands!

These may seem common sense, but just when should you wash your hands?

  • After using the restroom facilities
  • At the beginning and end of each work day
  • After touching surfaces that are contaminated
  • Before and after using gloves
  • Before eating, smoking, or touching medications
  • After wiping your nose or touching your face
  • Before preparing or eating food
  • After handling an animal
  • Before and after treating a cut or injury
  • Before and after helping someone who is ill
