The spread of microorganisms poses a serious threat to those undergoing care in a healthcare setting. The sick patient is at increased risk of infection from microbes, such as drug resistant strains or superbugs, like MRSA. Without effective control of these organisms, patients and healthcare professionals alike are at risk.
In the community and primary healthcare settings the latest data reveals infection is primarily spread through hand contact. With the onslaught of swine flu adding to the collection of bacteria problems, it is a living and business nightmare for everyone. The best and most effective products should be used to combat the spread of disease in healthcare settings of all kinds.
Hand hygiene compliance is a critical issue for reputation, accreditation and compliance requirements in healthcare settings. Compliance can be difficult, given the operational challenges, regulatory requirements and financial constraints in healthcare settings. EcoHydra will work with each healthcare setting to help them establish the most appropriate hand hygiene programme to fit with their regulatory, financial and commercial requirements.
EcoHydra products are safe and easy to use, as well as being highly effective against a broad spectrum of microbes. The range of products is suited for all healthcare situations, and ensures caregivers and patients are safe and do not spread germs, while maintaining healthy hands.
EcoHydra products are being used in hospitals, dental surgeries, care homes, primary care settings and a wide variety of areas within the community.
Health acquired infections continue to be a nuisance in everyday environments. More and more complicated infections are set to menace us, especially within the dental surgery environment. As a result, clinically proven, alcohol free antibacterial solutions that are kind to the user and the environment, as well as effective at killing off germs, are the future to effective hand hygiene.
