Everyone has heard about Hospital Acquired Infection (HAI). It's been covered in the news, and hospitals that are found to be dirty or particularly bad at infection control are highlighted in the media. Unfortunately, people have become accustomed to horror stories of superbugs such as MRSA and C-diff, and the apparent negligence of hospital staff who don't clean their hands. Over time, the threat of HAIs has become normalized and the public pressure to change has eased. This has resulted in a dangerous status quo. Unfortunately, for the people who lose a loved one, and patients who have to stay in hospital for longer, the danger of HAIs are very real. Existing approaches are failing patients and this problem will not go away.
Despite the scale of the problem, healthworkers are literally walking past a solution that could dramatically improve the situation. If hospital workers cleaned their hands more often, HAIs would plummet and tens of thousands of lives would be saved. When surveyed, hospital workers know that they should sanitize their hands, and also thought that they were themselves, following the guidelines. But when studied, nurses are only sanitizing 48% of when they should be and doctors at 32% are even worse.
They know the risks, but don't seem to be able to change their behavior.
The PullClean door handle (patent pending) is designed to provide sanitizer exactly when it is needed – as hospital workers and staff enter an environment in which patients are at risk. The door handle reminds staff to sanitize as they enter a room and provides them the means to do so. The powerful CountClean software (patent pending) monitors rates of hand sanitization, how much sanitizer is remaining in the handle, and when the cartridge should next be changed. The PullClean door handle provides a cost effective, innovative tool in the fight against infection and will reduce costs, suffering, and mortality.
PullClean has been designed to be intuitive to use, simple to fit, and easy to refill.
