Sufficiently long drying time is needed for an optimal bactericidal effect when using hand alcohol. The promising short application time is also useful for a range of other uses. The education program significantly improved the observed median drying time from 4 to 10 s, comparable in magnitude to findings from earlier studies in adult ICU settings (Boyce and Pittet, 2002, Karabay et al., 2005 and Sickbert-Bennett et al., 2005). Still, the median drying time was shorter than the manufacturer’s recommended optimal drying time. Possible reasons are a high workload, forgetfulness, and fear of skin irritation (Boyce and Pittet, 2002 and Grol and Grimshaw, 2003). The consumption of hand alcohol in our study rose significantly after the education program

Given that the purpose of hand washing is to avoid the transmission of infection between patients, and each hand washing event is less than 100% effective, with some microorganisms remaining on hands despite washing (Harbarth, 2013), it follows that the risk of transmission is influenced by both the efficacy of the hand washing process and the frequency of patient-to-patient interactions made by healthcare workers.
