Caregiver Hand Washing Guide | America Homecare

As a caregiver, you frequently encounter patients and objects that are likely to carry germs that further spread infection. People who need caregivers are extra vulnerable to viruses. Therefore, it is extremely important for you to know how to properly wash your hands. This will reduce the risk of catching and spreading an infection. Here is a short caregiver hand washing guide. This features some effective hand washing tips for caregivers to prevent the spread of diseases such as the common cold and the flu.


  • Wash your hands frequently.
  • Wash your hands using soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • First, wet your hands with water. Then, use enough soap that helps cover your entire hand surface.
  • Use alcohol-based hand-rub in case you don’t have access to soap and water.
  • Clean rigorously between fingers and around rings.
  • Pay close attention to fingernails.
  • Dry your hands with a single-use towel.
  • Use paper roll to close the tap.
  • Never miss washing hands before and after attending a contaminated person.


Proper and regular hand washing is the key to kill the germs on your hands. Washing your hands properly can be seen as the biggest defense to protect yourself from an infection as a caregiver. It is crucial to keep yourself clean now and during cold and flu season.
