Georgia-Pacific and Versus Technology collaborate over healthcare hygiene
Georgia-Pacific Professional has entered into a strategic alliance with Versus Technology, to introduce the SafeHaven monitoring system, designed to help healthcare workers improve their hand hygiene participation rates.
Healthcare associated infections are a growing challenge affecting the quality of healthcare, and according to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, the best way to help prevent the spread of HAIs is through proper hand hygiene. Therefore, improving how healthcare facilities manage these infections can help contribute to patient and healthcare worker safety, as well as help manage the costs associated with these infections.
The SafeHaven system combines Versus Real-Time Locating System technology and Georgia-Pacific Professional dispensers and skin care products to make it easier than ever for healthcare professionals to practice and monitor good hand hygiene and helps create a healthier environment in their facilities.
Versus infrared and radio-frequency technology can accurately identify individuals, pinpoint their location and detect necessary hand hygiene occasions. The associated customisable software solution provides real-time hand hygiene feedback to healthcare professionals and detailed reporting to management and administration to optimize training opportunities.
