The spread of microorganisms poses a serious threat to those undergoing care or treatment in a healthcare setting.
- Primary Care
- Care Homes
The patient is at increased risk of infection from microbes, such as drug resistant strains or superbugs, like MRSA. Without effective control of these organisms, patients and healthcare professionals alike are at risk.
In the community and primary healthcare settings the latest data reveals infection is primarily spread through hand contact.
With viral diseases such as swine flu adding to the existing bacterial infections, it is necessary to be continually alert to risks of infection many sources. The best and most effective products should be used to combat the spread of disease in healthcare settings of all kinds.
Hand hygiene compliance is a critical issue for reputation, accreditation and patient safety in the healthcare environment.
Compliance can be difficult, given the operational challenges, regulatory requirements and financial constraints in healthcare. The EcoHydra team will work with each healthcare setting to help them establish the most appropriate hand hygiene programme to fit with their specific circumstances

Health acquired infections continue to be a nuisance in everyday environments. More and more complicated infections are set to menace us, especially within the dental surgery environment. As a result, clinically proven, alcohol free antibacterial solutions that are kind to the user and the environment, as well as effective at killing off germs, are the future to effective hand hygiene.
