HyGreen collaborates with healthcare professionals to develop Ebola preparedness plans
Hygreen is collaborating with a number of hospitals and infection control professionals in the development of Ebola Preparedness Plans that incorporate 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," says the company's president, Ron Youngblood.
"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 our clients with evidenced-based outcome solutions in their efforts to provide the safest environment possible for patients, visitors and staff."
The HyGreen system was designed to reflect guidelines from leading industry experts, including the Association for Professionals in Infection Control & Epidemiology (APIC), the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America (SHEA), the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) The World Health Organisation (WHO) and the Joint Commission.
