I'm a new Infection Prevention Nurse. Part of my job responsibilities are to work with the staff on IP programs, like hand hygiene, and isolation compliance.
I do informal sessions, where I carry around questions, and provide rewards for participation. It is usually chocolate, or Starbucks Via coffee packs. The staff so far have responded well (I mean it is chocolate.). our hand hygiene rates are improving!
I would like to provide something like the individual purse sized sanitizing gels for infection Prevention week....but it is "out of our budget" (We have like, NO budget). Have any of you had any success in getting companies to sponsor and provide such items? How did you do it? Were there conflicts if these items were provided by a company (you know the brand name on it and all that?
