Sensors help healthcare facilities keep track of hand hygiene

November 4, 2019

Small sensors monitor employee hand hygiene in the inpatient rooms at Franklin Woods Community Hospital in Johnson City, Tenn, according to an article on the Modern Healthcare website.

The system compiles data on hand-hygiene compliance at the employee, unit and facility level by tracking whether an employee cleans their hands within 60 seconds of entering a room.

Each employee has a badge that goes behind their name tag.

There are also location hubs to track when staff wearing those badges enter and exit a room.
