The Benefits of Automated Handwashing Healthcare



Hospitals, doctor's offices, and dentist offices have worked to improve hand sanitation with Meritech CleanTech® Automated Handwashing Stations— clinically proven to remove more than 99.9% of pathogens from hands with each 12-second wash cycle. Manual handwashing healthcare procedures leave too much room for human error that can have major negative health impacts for staff, visitors, and patients. 

A Simplified Process for Handwashing Healthcare

Between the high rate of Hospital Acquired Infections (HAIs) coupled with shockingly poor hand hygiene compliance in healthcare settings today (recent studies show healthcare professionals only comply with guidelines 40% of the time!)—it is clear that there is a need for more effective hand hygiene solutions in healthcare. Meritech eliminates the risk of infection spread from hands with fully automated, validated, and standardized employee hygiene technology:

  • Clinically proven to consistently remove 99.9% of harmful pathogens
  • Helps increase hygiene compliance by up to 400%
  • Feels fantastic and softens skin with each wash for long-term improved skin health
  • Integrates seamlessly into your facility’s location and hygiene program
  • Exceeds CDC, USDA, and FDA regulatory safety and sanitation requirements
  • Makes hygiene event tracking and documentation effortless

Our automated handwashing machines save time, standardize hand hygiene, and improve handwashing compliance all while wasting zero water or solution.

Plus, our uniquely formulated UltraPure hand hygiene solution is crafted with added skin softeners and emollients to improve skin health and prevent chaffing, cracking, or splitting unliked frequently used hand sanitizers. Meritech's proprietary solution formulations are specifically designed to work with our automated hygiene system to ensure the removal of 99.9% of pathogens during each hand washing cycle. Not only are these unique solutions designed for optimal pathogen reduction and skin health, they are also, fragrance-free, triclosan-free, dye-free, biodegradable and kosher.

Your Partners in Hand Hygiene Technology

When employee hands are placed in the handwashing cylinders, jets deploy water and our proprietary solution evenly across all areas of the hands, achieving a balance of removal of dangerous pathogens without excessive damage to the skin, in two ways - gentle friction using a mild anti-microbial and balanced formulation of surfactants, and the addition of skin healthy emollients in our solutions to promote skin health and a normal skin ecology.

While we are certainly proud of our innovative technology, Meritech is more than an equipment manufacturer—we are a strategic partner in hygiene excellence. Our goal is to make effective handwashing easy, effective, and sustainable for the environment, all while providing you with real-time and simplified insights from our CleanTech® systems to help you proactively address hygiene compliance issues.
