“Every time we do this event, we focus on a specific goal from the National Patient Safety Foundation for every hospital for that year. This year we are concentrating on hand hygiene and the stated goal to ‘reduce the risk of health-care associated infection.’ Our intention is to try and have everyone ‘Weed out Germs’ at home, at play and especially at work here at NHB,” said Cmdr. Kevin Burns, Quality Management Department Head.

This year's campaign for the Department of Defense is about uniting across the Military Health System and recognizing that everyone, – health care providers, non-clinical staff, patients, and families – has a role to play in keeping patients safe and free from harm.
