How infection spreadsThe majority of hospital acquired infections are caused by bacteria. These include Staphylococcus, E. coli and Enterococci. The remaining 10% are caused by viruses and fungi. These infections are spread by hand-to-hand and hand-to-surface-to-hand contact, which means that the best way to break the cycle is by washing or sanitising hands as often as possible.
Training staff in effective hand hygieneThere are three GlitterBug products that are used to train hospital staff in good hand hygiene: GlitterBug Potion is for training hand washing. GlitterBug Gel is for training sanitiser use. GlitterBug Powder is teaching about cross-contamination.
GlitterBug Potion shows students the parts of their hands they have missed with their hand-washing making it easier for you to teach them good techniques.
Training gel for teaching and testing hand sanitiser application technique fun and easily.
