Washing Hands of Nosocomial Infection

Along with a great attitude, hands are important tools healthcare facilities have for assisting the healing process. A surgeon’s hands that are contaminate-free are essential before entering the surgery suite. Every successful (human-performed) surgery begins with clean hands and a hygienic sink.

It is common to spread bacteria and viruses via hand transmission and, for this reason, surgeons have a detailed outline as to how hands and arms should be washed before surgery. Surgical site infections are a common nosocomial infection and reducing this risk is of paramount importance. No healthcare organization wants to be responsible for infecting a patient with a bloodstream infection during a surgical procedure.

Welnest surgical sinks help prevent nosocomial infections because they are nonporous and resistant to bacteria. Our sinks have a guard to prevent water and contaminants from splashing on to the surgical attire and they are aesthetically pleasing as well. At Welnest we provide healthcare furnishings that improve patient outcomes. Contact us to find out how our products assist the healing process.
