Using Clean Hands – Safe Hands shows that your hospital has taken extra measures to keep you and other patients safe
For most patients in a hospital, their goal is to get healthy as soon as possible so they can return home. Most of the time, this happens. But sometimes hospital patients catch a healthcare-associated infection (HAI). There are many reasons for HAIs, but the main one is that clinicians sometimes forget to clean their hands in between patients.
Clinicians are hard-working and highly compassionate people – they don’t intend to forget to clean their hands, but they’re typically caring for a lot of patients and are moving very quickly. The Clean Hands – Safe Hands system helps remind nurses, physicians and technicians to clean their hands when entering and exiting your patient room.
You may hear our Real-Time Voice Reminder™ saying something like “Please sanitize” if a clinician forgets. You’re welcome to ask your provider if they’ve sanitized, whether or not you hear the voice. Using Clean Hands – Safe Hands shows that your hospital has taken extra measures to keep you and other patients safe.
