Dec. 3, 2012 - PRLog -- HyGreen, Inc. announced today that it will showcase its hand hygiene system, HyGreen®, at the 24th Annual National Forum on Quality Improvement in Healthcare.  This year’s event will be taking place December 9–12, 2012 at the Orlando World Center Marriott Convention Center in Orlando, FL.

HyGreen will demonstrate its real-time electronic hand hygiene recording and reminding system at booth #903.

Why is hand hygiene important? Studies show that hand washing is the simplest and most effective way to reduce healthcare associated infections (HAIs). Despite this, hand hygiene in hospitals is low, averaging 40%. Lack of hand washing has lead to the 1.7 million infections recorded in the U.S. each year adding more than $40 billion annually to U.S. healthcare costs. HyGreen’s ability to remind healthcare workers to wash before patient contact enhances patient safety and helps hospitals lower healthcare associated infections.

“With healthcare associated infections on the rise, it is more important than ever to improve health care systems through reducing infections,” states HyGreen Executive Vice President Kevin Quilty. “Conference attendees will get a unique opportunity to use HyGreen and talk to experts about how HyGreen can work in their infection control programs and improve patient outcomes.”

The HyGreen system was designed to reflect guidelines from leading industry experts, including the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC), the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America (SHEA), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Joint Commission.

On Monday, December 17th, HyGreen, Inc. is holding a Webinar on the HyGreen® Hand Hygiene System. To attend, log on to http://www.hygreen.com or contact us at info@hygreen.com.
