Focus on handwashing in hospitals has led to rise in staff dermatitis


The answer has to be that the NHS must invest in good quality moisturising hand wash and gel. No one can expect to wash their hands continuously and not have it impact on their skin, but there are measures that can minimise the effect. With nursing staff missing shifts due to the condition of their hands, it must surely be cost effective.
