A literature review shows that hand disinfection is superior to hand washing concerning the elimination of microorganisms. Alcohol-based hand rubs quickly and easily reduce the number of microorganisms on hands. It is important that healthcare professionals prevent the transmission of microorganisms by hand disinfection before and after patient-related procedures. Factors that influence adherence to hand disinfection are discussed.
