Specially-designed Hand Gel Stations from Tensator have been installed at Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust to supplement infection control measures already in place.
The versatile stations guide visitors and staff towards a hand gel unit and feature eye-catching green webbing.
Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust, which has approximately 850 in-patient beds and treats in the region of 400,000 patients per year, has been using the system in its Intensive Care Unit.
The unit’s clinical director Dr Tony Thomas said: “Infection control is of paramount importance and we work hard to continuously remind patients and visitors to regularly wash their hands. The feedback is that the nurses and other staff are using the Hand Gel Stations to complement the infection control measures they are already vigorously applying.”
Hayley Thomson, from Tensator, commented: “The Hand Gel Stations have been designed specifically with the aim of assisting hospitals in their fight to keep wards clean from infections. We’re delighted that the hospital is using the system and have found it to be of great use.”
The Hand Gel Stations fit on to any existing Tensabarrier systems and the acrylic insert fits into Tensator’s sign frame, enabling users to quickly and easily transform existing systems into germ-prevention units.
