Hill-Rom Launches New Hospital Hand Hygiene Monitoring Solution

Hospital-acquired infections can be deadly – and many times preventable. Nearly every major public health organization agrees that ineffective "hand-hygiene" (hand washing or using disinfecting sprays, wipes or gels) is one of the most significant contributors to the problem. Hill-Rom has developed a new system to help hospitals monitor hand-hygiene rates: the Hill-Rom® Hand Hygiene Compliance Solution. The new offering, which is now available to hospitals nationwide, provides real-time monitoring and staff reminders, simplifies reporting, and can use the same hardware and devices as other Hill-Rom real-time locating solutions.
