This week (December 4-10, 2022) is National Handwashing Awareness Week. As we all know, hand hygiene is a critical component of clinical care and patient safety. In this post we’ll be looking at handwashing campaigns at Mount Sinai Beth Israel over the years. (Click on the images for a larger view, or see the links below to view the item in our catalog.)
You can also read more about the history of Beth Israel, including through the “Building Beth Israel” series. An interactive map of Beth Israel historical locations is also available.
