Infection Control Hand Hygiene Care

Hand hygiene and infection control go ‘hand in hand’. Maintaining clean hands is a sure fire way of reducing infections in all environments and is recognised by the Department of Health as the first line of defence against spreading many illnesses.

An effective hand hygiene compliance programme, including frequent hand washing, use of hand sanitisers and hand drying, will help protect your staff, your customers and your business. Help fight the spread of infection using Initial Medical’s specialist hand hygiene range. It continues working once dried by using Steri-7 Xtra's Reactive Barrier Technology, providing round the clock biosecurity, with no window of opportunity for germs to re-establish themselves.
