Winchester, The spread of infection in hospitals is high, one of prevention is to use hand sanitizer. But unfortunately still a few who do. Now there is a door handle with sterile gel to kill germs when pulled.
This sterile doorknobs called The Hygiene Handle that has 23 pressure points that will release the hand gels when pulled to open the door. This is because keeping hands clean is the most basic way to stop the infection and spread.
Matt Roberts (31 years) who find this tool has conducted trials at two hospitals and she hopes this invention can be launched nationally. This idea came when he came to the hospital as a visitor and see not many people who use a hand sanitizer mounted on the wall.
“The gel hand sanitizer was introduced in hospitals around the world in 2002 to prevent environmental infection. But there is still a few people who use it,” Matt said, as quoted from Dailymail.
Matt said at the hospital there are many posters calling for people to live a clean one of them by using hand sanitizers, but unfortunately not everyone pay attention and practice it.
This tool has been piloted at Queen Alexandra Hospital in Cosham and the Royal Hampshire County Hospital in Winchester. The results of this trial is quite good and positive, in some areas there was an increase up to 7 times as many people who wash their hands.
“Many people are unaware that harmful bacteria can exist everywhere, are therefore very important to find ways to stop and prevent these bacteria enter the hospital where there are patients who are susceptible to infection,” said Matthew Richardson of Queen Alexandra Hospital.
The Hygiene Handle is a simple but brilliant new tool that can be used by hospital staff, patients and visitors to clean up his hand so that it can help to protect patients and reduce infection.
