Electronic hand hygiene system fails to improve staff satisfaction in ICU

Date: Mon 11th March 2019

A study published in Antimicrobial Resistance & Infection Control examined the effect of introducing an electronic hand hygiene surveillance and intervention system into an intensive care unit.

Researchers introduced the system into a general ICU at a tertiary care teaching hospital. The system leveraged radiofrequency transmitters in patient care areas placed on hand hygiene dispensers and individual personal bracelets. The transmitters, which were connected to a central computer, could detect entry and exit from patient areas as well as missed hand hygiene opportunities.
