A Persistent Threat to Health, Safety & Efficiency
Healthcare – Associated Infections (HAIs) remain a persistent threat for patient safety, hospital reputation and the risk of financial repercussions and penalties.
A lack of hand hygiene compliance by healthcare staff continues to be a significant contributor to the spread of pathogens, resulting in HAIs. Implementing best practice makes a significant difference in increasing compliance and reducing HAIs.
- Universal standard – Follow the “5-Moments for Hand Hygiene” Guidelines, as recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO), for a higher standard of hand hygiene behavior in hospitals.
- Monitor and feedback – Provide meaningful and actionable feedback for hospital staff to generate positive and sustainable change in hand hygiene behavior.
- Skin Health – Integrate skin care with hand hygiene to improve the skin health of hospital staff and reduce barriers to hand hygiene compliance.
