Hand hygiene

Hand hygiene – Germs are spread mainly by poor hand hygiene

The importance of hand hygiene in the healthcare environment cannot be emphasised enough – proper hand hygiene is one of the most effective ways of reducing HAIs. On average healthcare providers clean their hands less than half of the times they should. This can then lead to 1-25 patients on any given day contracting at least one HAI. Furthermore, studies have shown commonly used alcohol wipes do not remove all pathogens – including pathogens such as C. Diff and MRSA.

Fortunately, UV-C germicidal light kills 99.99% of viruses and bacteria including C. Diff, MRSA and other harmful germs which have been passed on to surfaces. Great for the upcoming flu season which is meant to be the worst for 50 years. Ensure patients, visitors, you and your family all stay healthy this winter by incorporating UV-C Light Products into daily routine cleaning and pay attention to proper hand hygiene.
