Automated Handwashing for Healthcare
by Meritech, on July 24,2017
Improve hand sanitation in hospitals, doctors and dentist offices and other healthcare environments with Meritech CleanTech® Automated Handwashing Stations— clinically proven to remove more than 99.9% of pathogens from hands with each 12-second wash cycle.
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 the hand hygiene, and improves handwashing compliance all while using up to 75% less water and producing up to 75% less waste than traditional handwashing methods.
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 alcohol-free, fragrance-free, triclosan-free, dye-free, biodegradable and kosher.
When employee hands are placed in the hand washing 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.
