Yellowone Handsafe
Yellowone Handsafe improves patient safety and saving time in health-care settings.
Every year hospital-related infections kill 16 million patients around the world – more than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined. Correct hand hygiene contributes significantly to patient safety. Yet, the hand hygiene compliance among staff is only 40%. Studies show that there are two main reasons for 60% of the staff not washing their hands: 1) Hand hygiene is a procedure that takes time. 2) Their mobility is high, so they skip hand washing or hand disinfection when an emergency or unpredictable situation occurs or they are simply too busy. Yellowone Handsafe (YHS) is a wearable ”point of care” alcohol-based hand rub dispenser. Health-care staffs have easy access to hand cleansing without having to leave the patient zone. YHS facilitates the right action to occur at the right time and in the right way as recommended by World Health Organisation. YHS improves hand hygiene by supporting and promoting correct procedures among the staff and in the end saving patient lives.
