The problem: missing or irregular feedback

Many approaches exist to improve hand hygiene in hospitals and clinics. Feedback to medical staff is playing an increasingly important role in improving hand hygiene compliance. While thorough hand hygiene is a critical tool to prevent the spread of infection, implementation often falls short in hospital hygiene as a result of a lack of personnel and time resources.

The solution: the ingo-man® SmartNose

An integrated LED located on the top of the ingo-man® SmartNose module provides instant feedback to hospital staff on whether enough disinfectant has been dispensed, a key factor in successful hand disinfection. This auto-intervention can seamlessly integrate into everyday medical routines, saving time and resources.

 

Advantages of feedback on hand hygiene compliance

Feedback verbessert Händehygiene

Improve hand hygiene quality 

A study by Prof. Simone Scheithauer at the University Clinic RWTH Aachen demonstrates that regular feedback on hand hygiene behaviour significantly increases the consumption of sanitizer per hand disinfection.

Increase hand disinfections

A team of researchers led by Dr. Svenja Diefenbacher investigated the combined effects of goal setting and feedback on hand hygiene compliance in hospitals. The study clearly shows that these measures have a positive influence on hand disinfection.
