HandGiene Corp. has developed an RFID-enabled Hand Wash Monitoring System designed to ensure employees follow established hand washing protocols.
Under the system, each employee is issued an RFID embedded name tag. This tags are read by RFID enabled hand cleanser dispensing units and ancillary RFID readers that monitor employees as they move about the facility, in and out of the kitchen or storage rooms and use the bathroom and, in the case of a hospital, patient rooms. Each and every hand wash incidence is monitored and hand washes are logged into an database where administrators can access it in real time.
HandGiene developed the system specifically for use in health care and food service industries, where incidences of Hospital Acquired Infections (HAIs) and food borne illnesses still number in the millions.
