GAINESVILLE, Fla., Nov. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Obviously we are alarmed at the number of people that have been infected with the Ebola virus in West Africa and are very concerned now that Ebola has presented in the United States.
Based on the significant number of hospitals and infection control professionals that are contacting us, we have begun collaborating with these healthcare professionals in the development of their institution's Ebola Preparedness Plans and are incorporating HyGreen® Hand Hygiene Recording and Reminding System technology.
It is noteworthy that enveloped viruses are highly susceptible to good hand hygiene, hydrogen peroxide vapor and commonly used cleaning agents.
The HyGreen® Hand Hygiene Reminding System combines RF technology and proximity sensors through its advanced IT platform to provide sophisticated outcomes data. This data has shown a direct correlation to reductions in nosocomial infections and is a critical element to Ebola Preparedness Plans.
In addition, HyGreen® can provide you with a unique 'hybrid approach' by incorporating HyGreen® technology and Hospital Protocol development leveraging the synergistic advantages of technology and well written policy. Many institutions are now developing hybrid plans that incorporate both HyGreen® and revised Ebola policy into their new infection control plans.
We are committed to providing you evidenced-based outcome solutions in your efforts to provide the safest environment possible for your patients, visitors and your staff.
The HyGreen system was designed to reflect guidelines from leading industry experts, including the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC), the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America (SHEA), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) The World Health Organization (WHO) and the Joint Commission.
