How can a paper towel dispenser help prevent the spread of healthcare-associated infections?
What: Experiencing a global pandemic has shown us that many hospitals cannot contain the amount of people that need treatment, forcing some hospitals to expand their practices into non-sterile environments, causing a high risk of contamination.
The problem: 1 in every 25 patients being treated in hospitals in the United States has an health-care related infection (HAI). The only effective prevention is proper hand-hygiene procedures. Hand-sanitizer is the most efficient method, but it does not kill all types of bacteria like hand-washing does. So, in the event of an outbreak, staff need quick access to hand-washing stations.
