Training hand hygiene

Hand hygiene is important. Very important. We transmit bacteria, viruses and dirt with our hands. Proper hand washing and disinfection can ensure better hygiene. But we also know that training is needed for us to improve and to remember hand hygiene. Most of us have a laid-back attitude when it comes to our own hand hygiene. That's not how it should be.

Hand hygiene should be practised. Again and again to maintain a high standard.

Unfortunately, experience shows that we are never quite as good at maintaining a high level of hand hygiene as we think.

Although we are constantly reminded that we must be thorough with washing and disinfecting our hands, it is not enough.

When our hygiene is poor, we move dirt around and, in the worst case, we contribute to the spread of an infection.

  • With the hand training monitor and the use of fluorescent agent, you’ll get a clear look of how the agent has been distributed.

We can make a difference if we know how.

  • Add 1-2 pump of the fluorescent hand sanitizer/soap/lotion and distribute it like you would in a normal thorough hand disinfection.
  • Place your hands in the cabinet for inspection. The entire surface of your hands should show a even layer of flourescent agent. Repeat part 1, if necessary, until the entire surface is covered.
  • Wash your hands thoroughly, dry them and inspect in the box again. The areas that are still covered with flourescent are not washed sufficiently.
  • Learn the best technique for washing your hands below.
