With hand hygiene against hospital germs

Dear Sir or Madam,

Hand disinfection is one of the most important preventive measures to fight off the transmission of germs and pathogens in hospitals. But often, hands are only cleaned inadequately. The HELIOS University Hospital Wuppertal wants to counter this with a small device. Learn in our current video, how the little helper works and how it supports the employees in the correct hand disinfection.

Have fun watching!
