Hand hygiene monitoring made easy – how Hill-Rom’s Hand Hygiene Compliance Solution works
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’s Hand Hygiene Compliance Solution can help.
Our new hand hygiene compliance solution provides automatic monitoring of hand-hygiene and washing events, 24/7.
