Prof. David Coleman, Professor and Chair of Oral and Applied Microbiology at the School of Dental Science in Trinity spoke on RTE’s Morning Ireland and also on Newstalk about the spread of more virulent and antibiotic resistant forms of MRSA in hospitals in Ireland.
Professor Coleman expressed his worry that these strains will become dominant in the future. Importantly, he highlighted the enormous impact that hand hygiene has in preventing and reducing the spread of bacteria. In addition he emphasised how important it is that both visitors and staff carry out good hand hygiene practice, also noting that today we have the technology to put the procedures in place.
At SureWash we agree that good hand hygiene is crucial to preventing infection and we believe that effective procedures, like our hand hygiene technology solution, should be in practiced in all hospitals.
