Abstract: The objectives of this integrative review were to critically examine the overall state of the current evidence on the relationship between hand hygiene interventions and the incidence of health care-associated infections (HCAIs) in acute care and long-term care settings, and offer recommendations for future directions in the field based on our findings.
