Hand-hygiene is the simplest, most effective measure for preventing nosocomial (hospital-associated) infections; yet on average, compliance by health care workers to recommended hand-hygiene procedures usually is estimated at less than 50%.1
Hill-Rom® Hand Hygiene Compliance Solution can help
The Hill-Rom® Hand Hygiene Compliance Solution provides automatic monitoring of hand-hygiene events, 24/7/365. Caregivers simply wear a lightweight badge and go about their normal hand-hygiene activities, with no disruption to workflow.
The solution can provide a gentle reminder to staff of potential "missed" hand-hygiene opportunities and the solution enables visibility to hand-hygiene event data at all levels, from hospital to individual staff, supporting process-improvement initiatives.
Hill-Rom provides an evidence based, clinical change management process that will help create a culture of sustained hand-hygiene practices and help manage your deployment, one step at a time.
