Jefferson School of Nursing's Dr. Manning Provides Comment on "Fist Bump" Hand Hygiene Study

Mary Lou Manning, PhD, CRNP, CIC, FAAN, Associate Professor at the Jefferson School of Nursing, was tapped by national news media to provide perspective on healthcare implications of a popular study published in the United Kingdom.

The study "The Fist Bump: A More Hygienic Alternative to the Handshake" was published in the Journal of Infection Control.

Dr. Manning is president-elect of the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology, the organization that publishes the journal.

Rather than promoting the fist bump, Dr. Manning recommends promoting rigorous hand-washing and avoiding hand-to-hand greetings in healthcare settings.
