The following are examples of our hygiene technology being successfully deployed in the clinic and medical sectors.
St. Joseph Diocese Hospital, Bremen
The St. Joseph Diocese Hospital in Bremen opened in 1869 and soon grew to become a modern hospital in every respect. Keeping pace with modern developments is something that continues to this day. The hospital has more than 455 beds for general medicine, surgery, gynaecology and obstetrics, ophthalmology, ear, nose and throat medicine, anaesthesiology, ITU medicine, geriatrics, early rehabilitation and complementary medicine.
In June 2015, two MANOTIZER disinfectant dispensers were installed in the hospital’s reception area to improve hand hygiene. St. Joseph's chose the MANOTIZER because of its appearance and low maintenance due to its 5 litre tank.
Ophthalmologist practice, MVZ Beckum
To optimise their hand hygiene procedures, the ophthalmologists had a MANOTIZER installed in the foyer of their practice in Beckum in February 2011. The practice is very satisfied with the unit. Disinfectant usage showed significant increases after the MANOTIZER was installed.
Dr. Röschinger therefore decided to acquire two further units in April 2015: one is installed at the main practice in Beckum and the other at its branch in Neubeckum.
St. Vincenz Hospital Paderborn
St. Vincenz is the largest provider of hospital services in the Paderborn area. In 18 specialist departments with a total of 756 beds, a multi-disciplinary team of doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, psychologists, pastoral carers, social workers, and many other specialists provide in-patient care for over 40,000 people a year. Care, treatment and clinical diagnostics are being provided at three different locations: St. Vincenz Hospital, Am Busdorf; the St. Vincenz Gynaecological and Paediatric Clinic St. Louise, Husener Straße (both in Paderborn); and St. Josefs Hospital in Salzkotten.
To improve hand hygiene, 16 MANOTIZER’s were supplied to St. Vincenz Hospital in September 2014.
Dr. med. Barth Group Practice
The Group Practice in Steinfurt (Germany) provides general and family medical care to its patients, and specializes in treating sports injuries and illnesses affecting mobility.
In the interests and protection of patients, the practice constantly reviews its hand hygiene procedures and installed a MANOTIZER in the practice foyer in December 2013. Every patient entering the practice is now required to disinfect their hands using the non-contact System.
Eye Clinic Ahaus
The Eye Clinic in Ahaus was opened in 1992, and with partners at various locations, it provides all the treatment and examinations associated with a modern eye clinic. Its aims are to guarantee the provision of eye treatment in a rural region, to enable close cooperation between specialists via a quality network, to perform diagnoses via telemedicine, and to provide training. A total of 18 cooperating eye centres and 8 surgical centres are able to provide the region with local care facilities.
In June 2012, a MANOTIZER on a stand was installed in the main clinic's foyer to optimize hand hygiene procedures. The eye clinic is fully satisfied with the system and praise the reliability of its disinfectant dispenser.
St. Elisabeth Hospital Beckum
St. Elisabeth Hospital in Beckum is part of Münster's Franziskus Foundation and since April 2012 has been using 13 MANOTIZER’s. These are located in high foot-fall areas (foyer, departments and out-patients) as well as at entrances to the individual wards.
The hygiene specialist Ulla Altewischer is impressed by the MANOTIZER. "By using the MANOTIZER’s, we have been able to increase daily hand disinfection procedures by around 250. Their 'clean' look and flashing LEDs get noticed, which encourages visitors to disinfect their hands."
Last year, the St. Elisabeth-Hospital received a gold certificate, the highest award available, as part of a "Clean Hands CAMPAIGN".
