Healthcare associated infections are one of the leading causes of death in the U.S., costing up to $45 billion annually.
Each year, approximately two million patients in U.S. hospitals develop healthcare-associated infections and 100,000 die, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
On average, this “never-event” requires eight more days of hospitalization and adds more than $60,000 to the cost of the hospital stay. As a result, insurance no longer covers the cost of many healthcare-associated infections.
Hand-washing is recognized as the simplest, most effective way of reducing the rate of healthcare-associated infection.
Because it takes 15 seconds of friction to dissolve, HandGiene's specifically engineered antimicrobial soaps and sanitizers substantially reduce the bacterial contamination of hands and the transmission of deadly pathogens.
HandGiene’s monitoring and recording system will meet Joint Commission accreditation, HACCP and ISO-9000 standards as well as impending regulations for documentation of compliance with hand-hygiene protocols.
