Plan, Build & Equip

Shortly after a healthcare facility is conceived but long before the doors are open to patients or residents, the owners or their representatives make a series of key decisions starting with their own tolerance for risk. This is the cornerstone from which hand hygiene systems are designed, built and equipped. This standard drives all others, right through the shift-by-shift tracking systems to assure performance, 24/7.
