The SureWash Story

SureWash was founded on a simple set of principles. There are an estimated quarter of a million deaths worldwide per annum as a result of hospital acquired infections. Most noteworthy, the WHO and CDC believe that 50% of these deaths are as a result of poor hand hygiene technique/practices. Therefore, what may appear to be a relatively simple skill is alarmingly lacking in compliance. The SureWash hand hygiene training technology is innovative and unique to the market. It helps to reduce the stress and time associated with classroom setting training sessions. It also offers a convenient solution for conducting practical hand hygiene assessments and reporting.

Hand Hygiene Training for All

Although SureWash started out in the healthcare setting, we are now expanding into other industries. These includes education, pharmaceutical, food services/processing plants, the corporate setting and also the sports sector. Hand hygiene is important in the everyday life. SureWash helps organisations train employees in hand hygiene, to the standard of healthcare workers globally. Most importantly, SureWash not only saves your organisation time and money, but we help reduce the spread of infections. Training is engaging and the system takes learning out of the classroom setting, into the day to day work environment. As a result, training is available 24/7, with instant feedback to help users achieve proficiency. Therefore, by gamifying the learning process, repetition of training is encouraged, and muscle memory is built.

What Our Clients Say…

Slide “We have had the SureWash system in the Trust since the beginning of the COVID pandemic. This has allowed us to carry on training and education for Hand Hygiene and other IP topics, whilst the IP Team managed patients and supported the Trust during a changing and challenging time. We could leave it with the staff and they could use it without having us looking over their shoulder. This ensures that staff are not changing behaviours because they are watched. Staff enjoy being able to do the training when they want. (weekends, evening, nights etc)" - Dawn Westmoreland, Senior Nurse IPC, University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust ' Slide During the pandemic, SureWash has been an invaluable resource for training our staff and students in effective hand hygiene. The SureWash interface has been a key training resource in minimising COVID-19 risks in our hospital. - Assistant Professor Infection Prevention & Control, Mary O'Donnell, Dublin Dental University ' Slide SureWash GO enables ward-based learning of hand hygiene techniques through tutorial and assessment-based sessions by the staff themselves. This frees up time for the IPC nurses to work on other IPC initiatives required during this pandemic. - Lenora Leonard, Infection Prevention Control Nurse Manager, Beacon Hospital ' Slide “ We used the SureWash system on one of our children's wards to support a week long campaign of hand washing and general infection prevention training. The children got involved and took charge of encouraging staff to use the machine and challenge staff to a competition for who could get the best scores” - Dawn Westmoreland, Senior Nurse IPC, University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust ' Slide I have been using SureWash in the Mater Private Hospital for the last three years. I find SureWash to be an excellent educational tool and the SureWash team are extremely professional and helpful. - Alan Rooney, Infection Control Analyst and Auditor, Mater Private Network. ' Slide We love the SureWash machines! We have one in each of our main hospital sites. - HAI Patient Safety Co-ordinator, NHS Lothian. ' Slide SureWash helps to evaluate the hand hygiene technique, stressing the importance of covering all surfaces of the hands and spending appropriate length of time when performing hand hygiene. It makes these crucial key points easier to memorise and apply to practice. - Natalia Ovryakh, IPC Coordinator, Beacon Hospital ' Slide The device needed no training and staff used it unprompted… …61 staff used it on the Cardiac ward over a weekend. - Infection Control Team, Mater Private Hospital, Dublin, Ireland. ' Slide We have adopted the SureWash system as an integral part of hand hygiene training and assessment for undergraduate and postgraduate students and staff. - Dublin Dental University Hospital, Executive Team.

Ashford & St Peter’s Foundation, NHS Trust.
