Healthcare workers have been trained in hand hygiene since the days of Florence Nightingale. However, SureWash takes a modern approach to delivering training in the healthcare setting. The engaging, interactive software system uses augmented reality to provide quality hand hygiene training to healthcare workers, patients and visitors. This helps to encourage repeated learning among staff, therefore building muscle memory. In addition, real-time feedback is also incorporated for users during their training to help improve their technique. SureWash shifts learning from the classroom setting into the hospital environment, making training available 24/7. To offer a complete solution, infection control personnel (IPC) can access users training data on SureWash.Net. This enables the IPC team to evaluate and monitor hand hygiene progress and to guarantee positive results.
We are aware that teaching hand hygiene is time consuming and it can be difficult to generate enthusiasm. However, repetition of the technique is critical to learning. As a result, SureWash uses gamification to make training fun and engaging by incorporating a series of levels into learning. Training is delivered in short sessions to encourage a “practice-rest-repeat” technique. This is proven to be the most effective way to integrate the habit of good hand hygiene into the users muscle memory.
The SureWash system uses cutting edge technology to deliver hand hygiene training to the highest standard.
