The American Nurses Association (ANA) would like to thank the NursingWorld visitors who participated in the biweekly "Have Your Say" poll. This poll asked respondents if their health care facility had a hand hygiene protocol.

According to the results, 95% of the respondents confirmed having this protocol in place while only 5% responded that they do not. This was based on the 370 total votes submitted online.

To participate in the new poll, go to the NursingWorld homepage and answer the new poll question under the section titled "HAVE YOUR SAY" at bottom of the left margin. A new poll will be posted on a biweekly basis, and results from the previous will be made available.

"Have your Say" polls are snapshots taken during a brief period of time that reflect the views of users who choose to share their opinions on a variety of issues. The polls are not designed or intended to reflect a statistically valid representation of the population and should not be used as such.
