Title
(EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR IMPROVING HAND-SANITIZING COMPLIANCE IN HEALTH CARE FACILITIES
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL PERMETTANT D'AMÉLIORER LA CONFORMITÉ DE DÉSINFECTION DES MAINS DANS DES INSTALLATIONS DE SOINS DE SANTÉ
Abstract
(EN)
Embodiments of the invention track users' hand-cleaning compliance and display an indication of each user's compliance so that others can estimate how well each user complies with policy guidelines. Making sanitation compliance visible in this way enables social pressure to be focused on negligent users without requiring others to take specific, individual actions to call out a negligent user. Other features of the system are also described and claimed.
(FR)
Des modes de réalisation de l'invention suivent la conformité de désinfection des mains d'utilisateurs et affichent une indication de conformité de chaque utilisateur de sorte que d'autres puissent estimer à quel point chaque utilisateur reste conforme aux directives de politique. Le fait de rendre visible la conformité au règlement sanitaire permet de diriger la pression sociale vers les utilisateurs négligents, sans qu'il ne soit nécessaire que les autres prennent des mesures individuelles particulières pour exposer un utilisateur négligent. D'autres caractéristiques du système sont également décrites et revendiquées.
