Guidelines for Data Submission

Hand hygiene compliance (HHC) auditing is the established outcome measure for assessing the effectiveness of a hand hygiene program within the National Hand Hygiene Initiative (NHHI).

To ensure all hand hygiene compliance data collected and submitted as part of the NHHI is an accurate and reliable representation of a participating organisation's hand hygiene compliance, HHA has developed Guidelines for Data Submission for Hospitals and each of the specific settings that collect hand hygiene compliance data. All organisations submitting data to HHA are required to follow these guidelines.
