Just Clean Your Hands – Hospitals

Educating health care providers in hospitals about why, when and how to clean their hands is an important component of the Just Clean Your Hands (JCYH) program. This page provides important resources for hand hygiene programs in hospitals including educational background resources, as well as promotional materials and tools to support implementing hand hygiene programs.

Many of the resources on this page are specifically from the JCYH program that was launched by the Ministry of Health in 2008. This page also contains PHO and other organization’s resources that are important to supporting implementing hand hygiene programs.


JCYH print resources are no longer available through ServiceOntario

Resources are now available for download only on our website. For more information, please contact handhygiene@oahpp.ca or your Regional IPAC Support Team.
