Hospital Acquired Infections
With many visitors having weak immune systems there is an increasing focus on improving & controlling infection prevention and hand hygiene in healthcare settings, with the particular aim of reducing hospital acquired infections (HAIs).
From hospitals to surgeries and community care settings, such as nursing homes and care homes, there are two key issues that healthcare hand hygiene is concerned with:
1, Patient Care - ensuring that the hands of patients as well as staff are clean and decontaminated as appropriate; helping to prevent the spread of harmful bacteria and viruses. We recommend combining washing the hands and using an alcohol free hand sanitiser, (see our where to sanitise page HERE for more information).
2. Staff Care - with the high frequency of hand washing and hand sanitising, it is vital to ensure the purchase of a high grade alcohol free hand sanitiser. Especially as compliance from staff to maintain good skin condition can be a challenge. Poor knowledge reduces levels of compliance and increases the risk of life-threatening infections being spread. With Nilaqua® 6 hour post application protection, cross contamination is minimal.
How can Nilaqua help?
To meet the daily hand hygiene challenge, we have developed the Nilaqua® Hand Sanitising Regime that satisfies all occupational, community and acute healthcare needs. Depicted by the World Health Organisation.
With over 10 years of experience in hygiene Waterless Limited Representatives work with nurses to provide a structured approach to the skin safety challenges. We begin with the objective of a germ free world – every person, in every part of the healthcare operation complying with proper usage of products.
Although each environment has different challenges, our range and regime is tailored to meet your specific needs. It integrates with your own risk management activities including patient care protocols and Health and Safety procedures and the provision of personal protective supplies.
Benefits of choosing Nilaqua® Alcohol Free Sanitiser
The Nilaqua® Sanitising Regime is designed to help reduce the risk of cross infection and raise the level of staff compliance.
Nilaqua® offers low "cost-in-use" product and the potential to reduce the many indirect costs associated with poor hand hygiene and the spread of germs. Apart from personal cost, the financial costs to a healthcare organisation buying many inferior products, usually end up costing more than buying our all in one solution, but it also allows room for error, as using several products can become confusing. Cost of rectifying infected patients are likely to be many times higher than the cost of the hygiene products themselves.
In addition, the implementation of the use of Nilaqua® Alcohol Free Sanitiser will also provide the following benefits:
*Reduce the risk of cross infection with our advanced barrier control offering 6 hour protection
*Enhance regulatory compliance
*Reduce absentieesm between staff, reducing huge costs of bank nursing
*Motivate employees to comply with hand hygiene protocols
*Satisfy all requests such as vegan friendly, relgious compliance and area's of use, as Nilaqua® can be used in bathrooms, kitchens, operating rooms and more.
By choosing Nilaqua® as your skin care provider you will benefit from purchasing one standard product which will cover all of your requirements.
