Health care-associated infection is a major problem for patient safety and pervades every health-care facility and system around the world. Failure to perform appropriate hand hygiene is considered the leading cause of HCAI and spread of multi-resistant organisms. Its prevention must be a first priority in all neonatal care settings. Optima is a next-generation hand sanitizer that provides proven prevention against a wide range of microorganisms.
The Optima hand sanitizer kit includes: a supply of 400ml bottles of concentrated hand sanitizer, a 7L mixing container, an alcohol meter, a blender for mixing the alcohol with the concentrate, and a supply of 400ml dispenser bottles. The kit also provides bed and wall hangers to hang the dispensers on all baby beds and key locations, such as the entrance of the unit and the hand-washing area.
The 70% alcohol solution is not provided as part of the kit.
