Knowledge, attitude and practice of hand hygiene among medical students: A questionnaire based survey
Hand hygiene is recognized as the leading measure to prevent cross infection of microorganisms. It is vital in preventing the disease transmission among patients. There is a paucity of studies exploring this subject in this part of the country in North India. A cross-sectional study was conducted among 100 medical students (63 females and 37 males) in a tertiary care medical college and hospital in North India. Knowledge was assessed using WHO’s hand hygiene questionnaire. Attitude and practices were evaluated by using another self-structured questionnaire. 51% of participants (51 out of 100) had good knowledge regarding hand hygiene.
