Case Study: Choosing A Hand Dryer For Senior Living Centers

Proper hand hygiene is especially important for the elderly during the pandemic

November 19, 2020

Proper hand hygiene is one of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of disease. That includes washing hands for 15 to 20 seconds, but also effective drying methods.

Hand hygiene is especially important during the COVID-19 pandemic and the upcoming cold and flu season. Elderly residents in senior living centers are especially vulnerable. That’s why the Seabury Senior Living community in Bloomfield, Connecticut, turned to Excel Dryer for a safe, hygienic hand drying solution for their residents and staff after disappointing results with hand dryer models from two other manufacturers, according to a case study on CleanLink.

Seabury installed XLERATORs in the restrooms of their assisted living and independent living wings, but also in restrooms located in the health clinic and skilled nursing areas, where hand hygiene is the highest priority.

The touchless, sensor-activated design eliminates common touchpoints, helping to prevent cross-contamination.
