Record hand-hygiene observations more efficiently!

Failure to perform proper hand hygiene is one of the leading preventable causes of healthcare-associated infections. iScrub Lite is an application for healthcare professionals who wish to monitor hand-hygiene compliance without the time-consuming and error-prone use of clipboards and transcription. Use iScrub Lite to record observations annotated with time, location and job role. Transferring data from iScrub Lite is as easy as clicking "Email Observations".


* an intuitive interface that allows observers to quickly capture information about hand-hygiene opportunities.

* iScrub Lite is customizable. You can edit the default lists of locations, job types, and observation notes to suit your institution's needs.

* defaults to recording In Room / Out of Room opportunities, but also has a setting to enable observing the World Health Organization's 5 Moments of Hand Hygiene.

* knows what personal protective equipment is necessary for contact, droplet, and airborne isolation conditions.

* keeps a copy of the last 5 sets of observation data and can resend the corresponding emails.

* exports a spreadsheet compatible with popular spreadsheet applications (e.g., Microsoft Excel, Apple Numbers, or Calc) whether you are on a Mac or PC.

If you saw the iScrub poster at the SHEA / IDSA / APIC Fifth Decennial International Conference on Healthcare-Associated Infections, what you saw was iScrub Pro. iScrub Pro is currently in pilot deployment. We will soon be expanding our pilot program. If your institution is interested, please send us an email or use the form within iScrub Lite to make inquiries.

We're always looking to improve our application. Please e-mail with any specific requirements that your institution would find useful.

iScrub is brought to you by The Computational Epidemiology group at the University of Iowa. For more information, see

Love it SO MUCH we now need an updated version!

We use this hand hygiene auditing tool throughout my hospital! In fact, each unit has purchased their own iTouch in order to use this very app! It's extremely easy to use, and it allows us to collect accurate data and streamline it to the right people. We love it so much, we're already looking for a more advanced and improved version.


For anyone in the infection prevention role who does hand hygine complience surveys this app is awesome! Look like your playing on your phone but record data! Uploads so you can chart and graph results instantly! Great concept! I also like that it's customizable so u can change sites/diciplines (perhaps you have "west" wing instead of "ICU". Or your following students instead od staff). Can't wait for iscrub pro!

Great tool!!

I am trying to move my infection prevention department towards using technology to help us do our job better, I think this app will be a step in the right direction. This is a perfect example of using technology to save lives! This app is easily customizable to the demographics of your hospital!!
