The nurse is researching the literature to determine the best method to perform hand hygiene to prevent a postsurgical wound infection and has determined that which method has been determined to be the best?

▸ Hand hygiene using a surgical scrub brush and very hot water works best to prevent infection.

▸ Performing hand hygiene using an alcohol-based rub has been shown as the best method to prevent postoperative infection.

▸ Prior to surgery, washing the hands with soap and water and finishing with an alcohol-based hand wash is the best method to prevent infection.

▸ Research has not determined whether hand washing with soap or the use of alcohol-based hand hygiene is better at preventing infection.

Research has not determined whether hand washing with soap or the use of alcohol-based hand hygiene is better at preventing infection.

Research has shown that surgical hand antisepsis is necessary but it does not state which method has an advantage over the other.
