RLO: Hand Hygiene

The hand hygiene Hokey Cokey

You put both palms in
Then one on top
In out
In out
You soap them all about
You do the hokey cokey
And you interlock
That’s what it’s all about

Ooh you do the thumb bit
Ooh you do the finger bit
Right wrist, left wrist
Rah, rah, rah!!

If you say the Hand Hygiene Hokey Cokey each time you wash your hands, you will ensure that you are covering every surface of the hand and wrist within the recommended time of 10 - 15 seconds.
