The purpose of this study was to investigate factors influencing care workers’ intention of hand hygiene implementation in long-term care hospitals.
A total of 180 care workers working at long-term care hospitals were recruited. Data collection was done from July 22 to September 7, 2018.
The significant TPB variables influencing the intention of hand hygiene implementation were perceived behavior control (β=.41, p<.001), normative belief (β=.28, p<.001) and attitude toward behavior (β=.15, p=.014). These factors explain 39% of care workers’ intension of implementing hand hygiene in long-term care hospitals.
In order to strengthen the commitment of hand hygiene, it is necessary to have a positive attitude toward hand hygiene by eliminating the obstacles to hand hygiene.
