Healthy Measures helps combat against the spread of infection resulting in better patient and business outcomes.
Healthy Measures is a program designed to help protect your facility against HAI related incidents by enforcing proper surface sanitation and hand hygiene. Fewer infectious occurrences lead to a positive improvement in the overall health of your hospital and increased patient satisfaction.
This results-driven program partners with hospitals to incorporate best practices in surface sanitation and hand hygiene procedures in the fight against HAIs. A scorecard based site analysis is created to provide information to guide a review process. Once a baseline is established, a joint action plan is developed and an implementation plan created. The result is a clear path toward continuous improvement and an increased awareness of the importance of proper surface sanitation and hand hygiene.

Healthy Measures is a comprehensive program that leverages an onsite analysis to help you reduce the number of healthcare acquired infections and improve patient satisfaction. By dividing the hospital environment into similar zones, test points are easier to identify and manage. We can then implement specific surface sanitation and hand hygiene protocols and continuously monitor key test points to measure progress.
Placing hand sanitizers in key locations allows for frequent application, helping to prevent the spread of germs.
