TouchReady® Surfaces

Surfaces harbor pathogens. High-touch surface cleanliness is a critical patient-centered wellness factor. These surfaces must be identified and matched up with effective but user-friendly protocols. They must be cleaned often by everybody, not just housekeeping. Clean-as-you-go is the protocol of choice.

Monitor

Verification

Cleaned or not? A simple marking with an invisible ultra-violet ink, monitored with a uv disclosure light, provides the supervisor with data to reward success or discipline under achievement.

Rapid Detection

Rapid measurement technology can reduce hand-contamination by providing instant feedback on surface cleaning effectiveness. Cleaner surfaces promote cleaner hands and patient or resident wellness. Rapid feedback to staff defines success and stimulates training.

Standards

Two standards are required for handwashing, one for the quality and a second for the likely frequency to maintain hands CareReady®. An assessment of current practices is a good place to involve management and caregiver representatives from nursing, culinary and housekeeping.
