We investigated the compliance of health care personnel with a voluntary, institution-wide bare below the elbows (BBE) approach to inpatient care at an academic medical center. BBE compliance increased significantly across all provider types over a 2-year period. The overall compliance with BBE by health care personnel nearly doubled from 2016-2017, increasing significantly from 40% to 84%.
