Hygiene services for health service

Innovative hygiene solutions to help health services ensure high hygiene standards to protect staff, patients and equipment.

Avoiding cross-contamination in the healthcare sector should be a top priority. It’s important for healthcare providers to reduce the risk of infections and encourage high standards of hygiene in staff and visitors.

Close interaction means germs can circulate quickly and, with a high turnover of people in their care, practitioners such as physiotherapists, dentists and spa consultants could find it difficult to practise high standards of personal hygiene to protect clients.

Our integrated hygiene solutions, such as hygienic door handles, no-touch dispensers and kind-to-the-skin soaps, will help to minimise cross-contamination and help prevent infections while reassuring staff, customers and visitors.

Ensuring high levels of hygiene in health services

It’s never been more important to help healthcare providers mitigate the risk of infections. Particular attention needs to be paid to the following high-risk areas.

Reception and entrance areas

High-traffic areas such as reception rooms and entrances are a hotspot for germs. Providing hand sanitisers will help mitigate this risk.

Practitioner rooms

Treatment rooms could be a breeding ground for harmful bacteria without surface hygiene solutions in place to clean and disinfect these areas.

Kitchens

Communal areas such as canteens and kitchens can harbour germs. In these areas, hand and surface hygiene solutions are vital.

Washrooms

Toilet seats, sinks and flush handles can transmit germs. No-touch handwashing facilities in these areas are key to protecting staff and visitors.

Health service staff

Hand soap, drying solutions and hand sanitisers should be available to help stop the journey of the germ between staff and patients.

Payment facilities

Germs can spread via payment facilities such as tills and card readers. Using hand sanitisers in conjunction with surface hygiene practices is vital to stopping the spread.
