Most hospital acquired infections (HAIs) are spread by direct contact, especially via the hands of hospital staff. Studies within research clearly show that improved hand hygiene in hospitals can drastically reduce the number of nosocomial infections. Despite decades of effort to improve hand hygiene using manual observation and equal training in proper hand hygiene behavior, infections continue to affect millions of patients every year.
This ends now.
Measures compliance of everyone in the hospital – not just healthcare staff
You do not have to add any data to the system. All extraction is done autonomously. We do not add extra bureaucracy.
Our no-introduction system requires no training and no change of workflow.
Guidelines are seldom the same in every hospital. No problem. The system can adapt to your individual guidelines.
“Improved compliance in hand hygiene, with proper use of alcohol-based hand rubs, can reduce the nosocomial infection rate by as much as 40%.”
“It is estimated that up to 90% of nosocomial infections are transmitted through the hands.”
In a study conducted at the Geneva University Hospital, a 37% improvement in hand hygiene was associated with a 41% reduction in AI (even a 50% reduction in MRSA).
Reduce nosocomial infection rate by 31% by improving hand hygiene, p <0.01.
