Program Overview

Healthy Measures is designed to create a healthier environment specifically by reducing HAI occurrences through surface disinfection and hand hygiene. Fewer infectious occurrences lead to a positive improvement in the overall health of your hospital and increased patient satisfaction. 

This results-driven program provides a scorecard based site analysis to establish a baseline from which to measure progress. Then a joint action plan is developed and an implementation process is created with the conscious goal to promote awareness of the importance of proper surface disinfection and hand hygiene.

Three Step Process

A simple three-step process aims to reduce HAI occurrences to zero.

  1. Interviews with key personnel help to determine the current situation and establish targeted goals.
  2. The site survey divides the hospital into similar zones, patient areas, public areas and staff areas. This makes test points easier to identify, manage and assess. Zone specific protocols for surface sanitation and hand hygiene are then applied and monitored to measure progress.
  3. The solution proposal is the final step in which a collaborative plan is determined. Based on scorecard results, suggestions for improvements, a plan of action and implementation are developed. We work with you to help manage the path to success by providing:
    • staff training to instill expertise and sanitary consistency
    • information and education as to best practices and procedures
    • implementation a testing program designed for continuous improvement
    • centralized access to program resources via Web tools

Site Based Approach

Healthy Measures is a comprehensive program that leverages an onsite analysis to help you reduce the number of HAI incidences in your facility. By dividing the environment into related areas or zones, test points are determined to establish benchmarks within the program, before and after implementation.

Surfaces with a high potential for germ transmission are identified and labeled, along with callouts indicating ideal placement of hand sanitization tools to prevent the spread of germs.
