ABSTRACT

Hand hygiene is a cost-effective way in inhibiting spread of infection and also considered one of the important control processes of infection transmission in dental practice. The aim and objective of this study was to collect data among healthcare professionals, mainly dentists (practitioners, students and house officers) in a dental teaching hospital. Secondary aim was to measure the awareness of hand hygiene and knowledge regarding hand washing materials and procedures. The assessment of attitudes, knowledge and practice according to age, gender, and occupation was surveyed. A total number of practitioner, students and house officers included in this study were fifty and 100% responses were collected. Among the respondents 34 (68%) were males and 16 (32%) were females with an age ranging from 20-40 years. Dental staff who participated was 18 general practitioner (36%), 15 Students (30%) and 17 house officers were (34%). There was significant difference between two genders and age group. The average awareness regarding adaptation of the type of hand hygiene and positive indication about awareness of hand hygiene was higher when compare with international data. Data suggested that mostly people involve in this study use medicated soap other than alcohol. Smaller number of dental staff was involved in using alcohol-based hand sanitizer. However, it is suggested that multidimensional and enthusiastic efforts must be undertaken to create more awareness and compliance of hand hygiene among practitioners, house officers and students. Dental schools are highly encouraged to adapt and enhance their prospectus in order to improve hand hygiene among the dental staff.
