Effective Hand Hygiene is the single most important strategy in preventing  health care associated infection.1

 

WHO guideline2 states the following as priorities pertaining to HCW Skin condition:

  • Determine the most suitable hand hygiene agents;
  • Study the systematic replacement of conventional handwashing by handrubbing;
  • Develop hand hygiene agents with low skin irritancy potential;
  • Study the possible advantages and eventual interaction of hand care lotions, creams, and other barriers to help minimize the potential irritation associated with hand hygiene agents.

The Handicare TM   tristep range has been developed specifically for this purpose. Available in 500mL pump packs for easy use. White plastic wall brackets are also available for securing the pump packs to the wall for easy dispensing.
