Monitoring System Stops Hospital Infections with Traffic Light Camera to Capture Hand Hygiene Violators
Date:5/13/2009

ISLIP, N.Y., May 13 /PRNewswire/ -- On May 5th, the World Health Organization launched a worldwide initiative called SAVE LIVES: Clean Your Hands (http://www.who.int/gpsc/5may/en/index.html). More lives are lost to Hospital Acquired Infections than car accidents, breast cancer and HIV combined. Over 2 million patients are affected and 100,000 people a year die from HAIs such as MRSA, at a combined medical cost far exceeding $50 billion. The CDC estimates that at least half of all hospital infections are preventable through good hand hygiene. Currently, only 40% of hospital workers sanitize their hands.

When implemented, this recently developed, active surveillance hygiene monitoring system assures patients virtual 100% compliance with hand washing protocol by all hospital personnel while at the same time reducing staff workload by eliminating many unnecessary hand-cleaning procedures! Utilizing a proprietary concept, the patient is completely surrounded by an invisible, electro-static Bio-Field. Any intrusion into this field by persons not properly sanitized will be immediately detected and the violator's identity recorded. Capable of identifying and tracking those persons who have and have not satisfactorily sanitized their hands prior to contact with the patient, the system provides a caution message to the hospital workers and visitors alike relating to their hygiene status prior to entering the Bio-Field. Digital imaging locates the HCW and determines their direction and proximity to the patient. Fixed base and portable personal sanitizing dispensers interact with a digital display screen with color coordinated visual and audio messages reflecting a person's hygiene status and proximity to the patient. Individuals who have successfully complied with hygiene rules are respectively acknowledg
