Resurgent Introduces the CleanTech IC Automated Hand Washing System

Resurgent Health and Medical is introducing its new CleanTech IC hand washing system, which incorporates RFID compliance monitoring to ensure staff hand hygiene compliance.

The heart of the system is the use of patented, rotating cylinders that provide a high pressure, low volume water spray for fast, effective hand washing. Water and the company�s CHG-based solution are forced between the inner and outer sections of the cylinder through 20 jet spray nozzles. These nozzles are located throughout the cylinder to clean from fingertip to wrist.

CleanTech systems provide a comfortable wash, sanitize and rinse in 10-15 seconds. Used with Resurgent�s CHG-based hand sanitizing solutions, CleanTech systems reportedly kill 99.9 percent of germs.

Accurately measuring the hand washing activity of healthcare workers has been difficult and expensive to accomplish, but Resurgent�s system uses RFID tags for compliance verification and automated compliance reporting.
