In 2008 the federal government implemented the National Hand Hygiene Initiative, directing hospitals to conduct regular checks and report back on Hand Hygiene activities.
The main concern is that most hand hygiene compliance programs suffer from inadequate monitoring and lack of effective process control. Using RFID, hospitals can now implement an automated method of capturing hygiene activities. When coupled with motion sensors and readers the system can accurately identify the staff member, what time, and the duration spent at either the wash bays or at disinfectant dispensers. By implementing RFID solutions across areas such as patient tracking, surgical instrument tracking and most importantly hand hygiene practices, you will reduce costs whilst providing unparalleled levels of patient care.
