Exclusive Moments

We hope to add new items to this section regularly, so please send in any fantastic photos, posters, or work that your staff have done in the name of Hand Hygiene!

In response to a educational and promotional campaign run by Lorna Zachar Infection Control Co-ordinator Ramsey Health WA

Lorna constantly brings to our attention
The important message of cross infection
Her standards are high, she expects perfection
If we dont get it right she’ll bring in detention
She does her best to make us aware
That germs and bugs are everywhere
But some of the staff don’t seem to care
That germs are something you DO NOT share!
She works so hard to get the message across
Some staff and students think she's the boss
If we keep cross infecting it'll be Hollywood’s loss
And the good name we have will lose its gloss
So lets pull together and do what’s right
Give those germs one hell of a fright
Keep the five moments within your sight
And Hollywood’s future will be nice and bright
GOOD               BETTER              BEST
(soap and water)  (Antimicrobial)  (alcohol based)
Never let it rest
Till your good is better
and your better is best.
