Infectious Risk Moments: A Novel, Human Factors–Informed Approach to Infection Prevention. Clark et all (2014)
http://www.jstor.org/discover/10.1086/677166?uid=3739696&uid=2&uid=4&uid=3739256&sid=21104507319963

We pilot tested a novel human factors–informed concept to identify
infectious risk moments (IRMs) that occur with high frequency
during routine intensive care. Following 30 observation-hours, 28
potential IRMs related to hand hygiene, gloves, and objects were
expert rated. A comprehensive IRM inventory may provide valuable
taxonomy for research, training, and intervention.
