Title: MONITORING MODULES FOR HAND HYGIENE DISPENSERS
Abstract:
Monitoring modules for hand hygiene product dispensers may be installed in existing manual or touch free hand hygiene product dispensers to provide wireless communication of dispenser data to or from a dispenser. In one example, a manual dispenser beacon module is configured to be used with a manually actuated hand hygiene product dispenser to monitor hand hygiene compliance events (such as dispense events) associated with the dispenser, and to wirelessly transmit dispenser data to or from the manual dispenser. In another example, a touch free dispenser beacon module is configured to be used with a touch free hand hygiene product dispenser to monitor hand hygiene compliance events (such as dispense events) associated with the dispenser, and to wirelessly transmit dispenser data to or from the touch free dispenser. The dispenser data include at least a dispense event indication and a hand hygiene product bottle presence indication.
