Hospital makes proactive choice to elevate hand hygiene measures for
patients, staff and visitors
GOLDEN, Colo. and MINNEAPOLIS, Sept. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Resurgent Health and Medical, a leader in automated handwashing and sanitizing technology, announced today that Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota has ordered 25 CleanTech IC handwashing systems for its locations in Minneapolis and St. Paul. The hospitals will have the units located in various hallways for all medical staff, patients and visitors to use.
The CleanTech touchless system performs a fully-automated twelve-second wash, sanitize and rinse cycle. Using Resurgent's proprietary Chlorhexidine Gluconate (CHG) sanitizing solution, the single cycle removes over 99.9% of pathogens and continues to kill germs for up to six hours. The FDA certified CHG-based sanitizer contains mild skin conditioners to continuously improve skin health while removing dangerous germs.
The system further boosts compliance by ensuring a pleasant, uniform handwash using high-pressure water jets that perform a consistent wash-and-sanitize cycle every time the machines are used.
