Influence of Role Models and Hospital Design on the Hand Hygiene of Health-Care Workers

Author(s): Lankford, M. G., Zembower, T. R., Trick, W. E., Hacek, D. M., Noskin, G. A., Peterson, L. R.

Some reports suggest that role models, group behavior, and the level of managerial support influence reported levels of compliance. However, few studies have prospectively evaluated the association between hand-hygiene compliance and building design.
