Hand Hygiene Project

Five Moments for No Momo – The Missouri Hand Hygiene Project (Password protected page)

In the early 1970’s, there were reports of large hairy monster stalking the Louisiana, Missouri area who became known as “Momo the Monster.” Momo is back, in the form of MRSA, VRE, C. diff, and every other germ we know.

Be a Momo slayer! Based on the World Health Organization’s “Your Five Moments for Hand Hygiene” campaign, the Missouri Center for Patient Safety launched a pilot hand hygiene project with several facilities in southeast Missouri.
