If you're still using direct observation, there's a better way!
The DebMed GMS is the world's first electronic hand hygiene compliance monitoring system based on the World Health Organization's (WHO's) Five Moments of Hand Hygiene, a higher clinical standard of care.
Cleaning hands before and after patient care only accounts for half of all hand hygiene opportunities, leaving patients at risk. The DebMed GMS encourages and monitors hand hygiene compliance at all five moments.
The DebMed GMS offers a more accurate, cost-effective and reliable way to measure healthcare workers' hand hygiene compliance than direct observation or secret shoppers.
A complete line of hygiene products designed for healthcare by healthcare professionals.
The DebMed products, used with or without the optional electronic hand hygiene monitoring system, have been engineered exclusively for the healthcare environment.
DebMed has conducted rigorous testing in healthcare facilities with end users to ensure that the DebMed products and dispensers are well liked, easy to use and widely accepted by healthcare workers.
It is essential for hand sanitizer to be immediately accessible without healthcare workers having to leave the patient environment, enabling staff to clean their hands quickly and easily at the critical point of patient care.
Studies show that high hand hygiene compliance is achieved when dispensers are located at all points of care. Now for the first time, hospitals can track hand hygiene compliance at the bedside with the new DebMed point-of-care monitored dispenser.
