The purpose of this study was to clarify the factors relevant to hand washing of the nurses in institutions of the elderly people.  An extensive literature review had managed for developing a questionnaire of this study on the exiting studies on practice or evaluation of hand washing, and awareness of the responsibility of hand washing among nurses.  After a pilot study, a questionnaire with 27 items was developed.  1008 nurses in four different counties in Japan were recruited for the study, and their informed consents were obtained.  Valid responses were obtained from 925 nurses and percentage of collection of the questionnaire was 91.8%. As for statistical analysis, Varimax multivariable analysis was utilized with SPSS (Ver 12.0J). The following five factors were extracted based on the results of the multivariable analysis of a questionnaire; 1) identifying the need for judging the effect of disinfection, 2) certain occasions of hand washing, 3) eagerness of learning technique of hand washing, 4) consciousness of the responsibility of hand washing, and 5) acquired techniques of hand washing.  As the result, nurses of shorter employment practiced hand washing effectively and their consciousness of the responsibility of hand washing was stronger than nurses of longer employment. Implications for technical nursing education were discussed as promoting ?the consciousness of the responsibility of hand washing? for preventing infection was the most important issue, and ?acquired techniques of hand washing? or ?identifying the need for judging the effect of disinfection? were secondary issues.
