The hospital is one of the major places where properly cleaning one’s hands is absolutely imperative, which provides reason for the use of the HyGreen hygiene sensors.
Developed at the University of Florida, the HyGreen hygiene sensors can detect whether doctors and health care workers have followed hand-washing procedures before making contact with patients, explains Discovery.com. Working like a Breathalyzer for the hands, the hygiene sensors could potentially reduce the 2 million cases of hospital-related infections that occur annually in the United States. If an employee doesn’t follow procedure, their ID badges will vibrate and alert a database monitored by the hospital’s infection prevention team.
