From: Impact of sink location on hand hygiene compliance after care of patients with Clostridium difficile infection: a cross-sectional study

Characteristic Adjusted OR 95 % CI P
Proper timing of glove removal upon exiting patient zone 14.87 1.93–114.43 0.01
Distance between patient zone and sink 0.90 0.84–0.97 0.008
Number of 90° turns to reach the sink 0.78 0.44–1.37 0.78
  1. Analysis performed on 211 hand hygiene observations. Only observations during which healthcare workers wore gloves were included in the analysis. 36 observations (15 %) were excluded from the analysis due to missing data
