Improve hand hygiene technique for teachers and children

Encourage proper hand hygiene technique for educators and children.

Little ones are known for their runny noses.

Good hand hygiene technique can help ensure that one runny nose doesn’t get the whole class sick.

For teachers and children alike, the FirstHand system provides real-time feedback on hand washing to ensure duration and vigor that reduces the transmission of infections.
Q: Is more frequent hand washing enough to reduce transmission of pathogenic organisms?
A: More often is good, but proper technique matters too. In order to eradicate the pathogens, you must achieve sufficient duration and vigor.

Q: Is there a connection between measuring and changing hand hygiene behavior?
A: Absolutely - seeing is believing. Specific and real-time, in-the-moment hand washing feedback provided by the FirstHand Band improves duration and intensity, which are both crucial to good hand hygiene in child care.

Q: How does FirstHand hygiene data inform decisions by managers?
A: Our comprehensive portal and summary reports provide insight into hand hygiene patterns and provide actionable intelligence at both the individual and the group level. With FirstHand, management can answer questions about individual staff improvement, group use patterns, training needs, and equipment maintenance (e.g. refilling).

Q: What about administration monitoring and staff privacy?
A: Staff receive their own individual daily feedback reports. Administrators can access confidential, secure reports indicating individual results and group patterns.

Q: Is the FirstHand system difficult or timely to install?

A: No - our easy-to-implement system can be installed in 30 minutes or less and is easily portable between units or departments of your organization.
