Introducing OnHAND™, a hand hygiene support system designed to train and educate care practitioners. Easy and cost effective to install, OnHAND consists of four wireless components:
- employee badges,
- soap/sanitizer identifiers,
- patient care area identifiers, and
- centralized data gateways which accumulate performance data.
Join Vypin, LRNI and its partners in their OnHand Clean Hands Initiative. Employing technical research from the CDC (Center for Disease Control), the Clean Hands Initiative is designed to raise awareness and monitor service practices. Studies show that on average, healthcare providers clean their hands less than half of the times they should. This contributes to the spread of healthcare associated infections that affect 1 in 25 hospital patients on any given day. Nosocomial infections can cost up to $130,000 per incident and $4.5 billion annually in extended care and treatment.
