Background: The rate of the microbial exposure incidence among nurses through a variety of ways remains high. Paramedics play a vital role as a medium of nosocomial infection transmission in hospitals, especially the spread through direct contact. Objective: The purpose of this research was to determine the effectiveness of the auditing guidelines for methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus(MRSA) infection prevention and control using directive discourse in an attempt to improve compliance with handwashing among nurses in hospitals. Materials and Methods: This was quasi-experimental research using a pretest–posttest noncontrol design. The research subject consisted of a group of 25 nurses. Results: Measurement of handwashing before and after the treatment in the treatment group performed with a Kolmogorov–Smirnov test showed P value before the treatment was 0.200 and after the treatment was 0.200, indicating data were normal. T-test result showed there was a difference in the compliance with handwashing before and after treatment (P = 0.018, P < 0.05). Conclusions: The auditing guidelines for MRSA infection prevention and control using directive discourse were effective for improving compliance with handwashing among nurses in hospitals.
