Hyginex Launches Blog Focused on Championing Proper Hand Hygiene Practices

Hyginex Chief Medical Officer and Chief Strategy Officer Provide Useful Tips and Analysis to Improve Hand Hygiene Compliance

PRLog - Feb. 4, 2014 - SANTA MONICA, Calif. -- Hyginex, a unique wearable hand hygiene improvement technology, is furthering its commitment to help fight healthcare associated infections (HAIs) with the launch of its new blog www.hyginex.com/Blog. Healthcare facilities work hard to keep patient safety a priority, but problems like low hand hygiene compliance can often be complicated issues to correct.

Chief Medical Officer Dr. Jeannie Chen, MD and Chief Strategy Officer Linda Smith discuss the major challenges to improving hand hygiene compliance rates on the newly launched blog. They will be reviewing new hand hygiene related policies like the Joint Commission National Patient Safety Goal 7 and will also be providing commentary on quality and patient safety related events such as the Patient Safety Science and Technology Summit.

“Our goal is to provide a useful resource to healthcare practitioners who are faced with difficult challenges while improving hand hygiene compliance and reducing HAI rates in their facilities,” comments Dr. Chen.

Linda Smith says, “Patient safety and hand hygiene are our top priorities at Hyginex. We hope this blog provides healthcare leaders and hand hygiene champions tools to help strengthen their current infection prevention programs and make positive changes in their facilities.”
