The hand hygiene is very important in hospitals, however is somebody investigating the "cleanliness" of the examination gloves that the HCW have to wear? By browsing the internet one will see that examination gloves have a average of 40 CFU and 4000 endotoxins. The regulatory authorities DO NOT monitor the microbiological cleanliness of the gloves the HCW are wearing. Maybe this should be start of the path to hand hygiene as most of the procedures are being done being gloved.
