Catherine Booth Hospital has the highest hand hygiene compliance of any site in the CIUSSS West-Central Montreal. The rehabilitation facility achieved 77 per cent as an average for the four moments, just shy of the 80 per cent goal set by the Quebec Health Ministry. The multi-disciplinary team of over 80 staff, led by Head Nurse Sharon O’Grady, also conducted the greatest number of audits, with over 600 (each recording one hand-hygiene moment) in the month-long period ending in June. Floor two of the facility scored the highest rate for all four moments, averaging 80 per cent.

Jewish Eldercare recorded the greatest improvement in compliance, rising from 40 to 77 per cent between February and May for all four moments combined.
