The device needed no training and staff used it unprompted…… 61 staff used it on the Cardiac ward over a weekend. Ann Higgins, Assistant Director of Nursing, Infection Control, Mater Private Hospital, Dublin, Ireland.
The SureWash program was the perfect solution for teaching our visitors proper hand hygiene techniques, but we knew it needed a little modification to work in an informal learning environment. The team at SureWash provided expert advice on how to tailor the program for use by the general public and they enthusiastically supported our efforts to blend a little Professor Wellbody style into this amazing medical tool. They were meticulous and collaborative about all aspects of the project, from scrutinizing shop drawings and graphics, to adjusting the cameras and lights, or tweaking the timing of the program. Having already witnessed some of our visitors using the hand washing techniques in our restrooms, we couldn’t be happier with the final product.
