One Move to Protect is more than a slogan, it is the reality of the Hygie approach.
More than 10 years after its first introduction in hospitals, thousands of training, trials, integrations, studies and comments from medical staff and users, the finding is indisputable: the Hygie solution answers a serious problem. All nurses and attendants have a personal story to tell about excreta: spills, ruined clothing, entire beddings to change, filthy odors, environmental contamination, poorly followed practices, stacking up dirty equipment, etc. The list is long! These events can simply stop overnight thanks to the adoption of the Hygie systems.
The method is simple and appreciated by all staff members who use it: single patient supports (bedpan, urinal and vomit) with hygienic covers whose super absorbent pad will solidify biological fluids and trap odors. This approach can be combined with commodes adapted to infection control.
In a jiffy, spills, splashes, and transport of dirty supplies are eliminated. The handling time is reduced. Most of all, staff and beneficiaries’ satisfaction is increased!
It is simply a matter of providing an effective and quick-to-master tool that allows you to engage your staff in a more appropriate and humane approach.
Many studies show that the adoption of the recommended approach is followed by a decline in infection rates and many institutions use it successfully in their strategy to control MRSA, VRE, Clostridium difficile, the BHRe and BMR.
The need is even greater for institutions that do not have washbasins and perform rinses, cleanings and manual disinfections of soiled supplies. The Hygie solution is imperative to upgrade with the recognized standard precautions to avoid serious contamination problems.
“The Hygie solution answers a serious problem.
By capturing contaminants directly at the source, the cross-contamination is reduced”
These same daily problems in the management of excreta are also the cause of the spread of nosocomial infections (HAIs). By capturing contaminants directly at the source, these problems are eliminated and cross-contamination is reduced through the Hygie approach.
Many health facilities already use the hygienic covers in addition to their system of bedpan washers or macerator, in case of isolation measures. This use is an implicit admission of the limit of competing approaches when dealing with these problematic cases. However, this mixed practice does not completely manage the risks inherent to the use of washers, which several studies demonstrate the risk of environmental contamination.
With the progression of bacteria and the constant appearance of more resistant and harmful strains, the approach advocated by Hygie for complete management directly at the source is a guarantee of success and also helps manage the problem of asymptomatic patients.
Several studies show that adoption of the approach advocated by the industry professionals is followed by a decline in infection rates and many institutions use it successfully in their strategy to control MRSA, VRE, Clostridium difficile, multi and highly resistant bacteria.
The need is even greater for institutions that do not have bedpan washers and perform manual rinsing, cleaning and disinfections of contaminated supplies. The Hygie solution is imperative to meet the recognized standard precautions and avoid serious contamination problems.
Whether in hospitals, long-term care centers or retirement homes, everyone can easily and effectively use them to prevent and control nosocomial infections.
The adoption is so simple and fast that in 10 minutes we can present the product and train a team of professionals. In a few days, on each shift (day, evening, night) in small groups, it is possible to form complete units, or even entire hospitals.
It is this simplicity and the support offered by Hygie that have contributed to the adoption of these systems by health institutions around the world.
Now used in more than 1,000 hospitals and institutions around the world, the Hygie approach has been proven for more than 10 years and the use of its products is constantly increasing within health facilities.
Save time and simplify your task by adopting the various Hygie solutions now!
