Guiding Principle: Do No Harm:
Patients expect their caregivers to do no harm, and
gelFAST helps deliver that promise.
A hospital can be a dangerous place for a patient:
roughly one in ten patients who enter a hospital contract an
infection they did not have upon entry.* Of these, on average, 1
in 23 will die as a result of complications of their new
infection*, not the underlying condition that brought them to
the hospital originally. Almost half of the preventable
cross-infections are attributable to poor caregiver hand
gelFAST takes into account the extremely demanding
environment of a healthcare facility, helping caregivers rapidly
and easily disinfect their hands whenever it is needed and
indicated. Areas where gelFAST helps most:
- before and after patient contact,
- after touching inanimate objects,
- between sets of gloves,
- moving from infected to clean sites on patient
gelFAST lets proper hand hygiene becomes a habit very
quickly, benefiting the patient by the caregiversí safe hands.
Protecting those in your care is of paramount importance, and
the once-elusive basics of proper hand hygiene are now possible,
with gelFAST Anywear.
