Robust leadership in infection prevention and control is essential for effective decision-making, efficient use of resources and ensuring the provision of high quality, safe, effecitve, person-centred care (HIS, 2015)
Every year over 300,000 patients in England acquire a healthcare associated infection whilstin hospital. These infections cost the NHS more than £1 billion a year
According to the World Health Organisation, up to 10% of patients acquire an infection in our hospitals and healthcare facilities.
This costs Healthcare Facilities billions of Euro in increased lengths of stay and both direct and indirect costs of treating these infections.
For patients, the increased morbidity and mortality associated with HCAI mean hospitals are scary places to be.
While not all these infections are preventable, we now know many are. Prudent, accurate use of antibiotics; a clean hospital environment; correct skin decontamination using Chlorhexidine and Alcohol based disinfectants; cessation of smoking for more than 2 weeks pre operatively; aseptic non touch technique for invasive procedures; disinfection and sterilisation of equipment – the list of things that effect and impact positively on risk of infection are numerous.
Our Technology System TS+ is based on the WHO 5 moments conceptual framework for hand hygiene and supports the multi modal strategy for improving hand hygiene compliance.
