Patient Safety Congress: Video game will tackle HCAIs

  • Comment
A video game to monitor staff in infection control is to be piloted at a Yorkshire trust.

The game focuses on hand hygiene, linen disposal and commode use. Nurses are tested on their knowledge and can return to the game to improve their score.

Carol Hallam, lead infection control nurse at Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Trust where the game is being piloted, said: ‘Attitude is a key factor in how staff perform in relation to infection control and there is evidence to suggest that video games can change attitudes.’

The pilot is due to begin at the end of the year.
