Helping you optimise hand hygiene compliance

For you, preventing the spread of infection is a constant daily challenge.

Hand hygiene experts SC Johnson Professional know that, when you are faced with constrained time and resources, you need to be able to optimise compliance and reduce risk wherever possible, to help implement good hand hygiene behaviour.

As well as this, helping the people in your team keep their skin in good condition should be a vital part of your hand hygiene programme – poor skin condition has been shown to have a negative impact on hand hygiene compliance. In a 2020 survey of nurses sponsored by SC Johnson Professional, the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) found that 53% of respondents limited or stopped following recommended hand hygiene practices due to concerns that it may aggravate their skin condition.

With your team’s needs in mind, SC Johnson Professional have developed a new specialist Healthcare Programme, consisting of three elements.

Element 1 - Essential Products

The Programme is designed to help you provide products that are trusted to work and have been independently tested to high standards. You can be sure that SC Johnson Professional’s Programme will be tailored to the requirements of your healthcare setting.

The 3-Step product range has been developed specifically for healthcare to match three key steps of a hand hygiene programme: washing, sanitising and moisturising. These three key steps help reduce the risk of spread of infection and maintain good skin health. To meet your needs, Cutan healthcare products are formulated especially for high frequency use environments.

The 3 Step range includes products matched to the needs of your team, including:

  1. Washing
  2. Sanitising
  3. Moisturising

To help support you with the implementation of these Essential Products, dispenser systems are available in wall-mounted, bed end and trolley mount options. This helps you ensure that your staff can use the right product at the right time, helping them do their job quickly and safely. Colour coding means instant visibility - helping your staff identify the product they need.

Furthermore, Biocote® protected dispenser push buttons are uniquely protected with a silver-based antimicrobial agent. This reduces bacteria and mould on the surface of the button within as little as two hours and achieves up to 99.99% reduction over a 24-hour period.

Element 2 - Support Tools  

SC Johnson Professional are here to support you and your team with learning, education, and prompt tools to enhance the implementation of hand hygiene and skin care best practice. You will be provided with a comprehensive range of materials including ward signs, sanitising boards and dispenser surrounds that can be used with patients, visitors and clinical staff to help promote hand hygiene compliance.

To help you to implement this, SC Johnson Professional also can provide on-site staff training, study day support, compliance material installation as well as the roll out of our unique 6-Stage Compliance Plan.

Element 3- Driving compliance with the 6-Stage Plan

To help you be sure that your teams are practising the best possible hand hygiene, a dedicated compliance team works in partnership with your infection prevention team to establish and implement the Compliance Plan, tailored to your facility’s needs.

The Plan comprises of:

  1. A survey
  2. Benchmarking
  3. Refurbishing
  4. Training
  5. Support
  6. Evaluation
