Hospitals are complex medical service units, as well as places to interact between patients, health workers, visitors and patient nurses. The existence of this interaction risks causing nosocomial infections. The practice of hand washing must be applied by everyone in the hospital environment to prevent the occurrence of nosocomial infections. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of health education with leaflets and demonstrations on compliance with the implementation of hand washing on patient caregivers. The study design used quasi-experimental design with non-equivalent control group design. The experimental group was given health education with leaflets and demonstrations. Compliance with the implementation of hand washing was measured twice, namely before and after being given health education by means of observation. The study sample was 30 subjects. The sampling technique uses purposive sampling. The results showed that in the experimental group there was an increase in adherence to the implementation of hand washing in the patient’s guardian at 60%, while in the control group it was 13.3%. The results of the chi square test obtained pvalue = 0.035 < α (0.05) which means that health education using leaflets and demonstrations can improve compliance with the implementation of hand washing of patient caregivers.
