National Handwashing Awareness Week 2014 (December 1st–7th)

National Handwashing Awareness Week 2014 (December 1st–7th)

Handwashing is one of the easiest tasks we do on a day to day basis.

It’s also the easiest and most effective way to prevent infectious diseases, such as colds and the flu, which we all know that the season is upon us!


So the questions are:

When should you wash your hands?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, you should wash your hands:

  • Before, during, and after preparing food
  • Before eating food
  • Before and after caring for someone who is sick
  • Before and after treating a cut or wound
  • After using the toilet
  • After changing diapers or cleaning up a child who has used the toilet
  • After blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing
  • After touching an animal, animal feed, or animal waste
  • After touching garbage

What is the right way to wash your hands?

Again, according to the CDC, the right steps of handwashing includes:

  • Wet your hands with clean, running water (warm or cold), turn off the tap, and apply soap.
  • Lather your hands by rubbing them together with the soap. Be sure to lather the backs of your hands, between your fingers, and under your nails.
  • Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds. Need a timer? Hum the “Happy Birthday” song from beginning to end twice.
  • Rinse your hands well under clean, running water.
  • Dry your hands using a clean towel or air dryer.

The World Health Organization states that “simple hand-washing could save up to 1 million lives each year” around the globe.

Do your part and spread awareness instead of germs!


View the Senior Capstone Presentations via WebEx


The Minnesota State University Moorhead School of Nursing and Healthcare Leadership graduating nursing students will present their capstone projects via WebEx Wednesday December 10 (9:30 AM – 5:30 PM) and Thursday December 11 (8:30 AM – 4:30 PM). The projects will showcase the issues students have either encountered while working in the clinical setting or those they have identified through their coursework. The overall goal of their projects is to improve the quality and safety of nursing care and ultimately healthcare.

The safety and quality of healthcare affects all of us. You are encouraged to come and learn about the ways in which our MSUM baccalaureate nurses have and will make a positive impact in the healthcare care community. If you are interested in attending any of the sessions, please contact the School of Nursing and Healthcare Leadership at 218-477-5990 or for a WebEx link.
