All trained auditors, both GSAs and GAs, need to complete annual validation to maintain their auditor status. This is an NHHI requirement, which, if not met, will result in removal of the auditor’s access to Hand Hygiene Compliance Application (HHCApp). This means they are unable to enter hand hygiene compliance data.
Annual validation requirements include:
- Collection of 100 moments entered into HHCApp against the auditor's name
- Completion of the Annual Auditor Online Learning Module
It is the responsibility of the hand hygiene lead for each organisation to ensure all auditors meet their annual validation requirements. Auditors who have not met the above criteria are required to follow the Lapsed Auditor Pathway in the Annual Auditor Validation Guide.
