The Importance of Good Hand Washing and Infection Control
Jet air and warm air driers contaminate air in washrooms and may be unsuitable for use in healthcare settings.
Bacteria propelled into the air and onto users and by-standers risks cross contamination between healthcare workers and general public. The peer reviewed study, performed by Prof. Mark Wilcox of the Leeds University and Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trusts concludes that jet air and warm air hand driers have a greater potential to contaminate washrooms by spreading bacteria into the air and onto users and bystanders. The findings have significant implications for infection control health professionals and purchasing managers responsible for equipping hospital washrooms.
Why Paper Towels are the smart choice for drying hands?
Effective hand hygiene is crucial to minimize the spread of infections. Public washrooms, which serve many people each day, must offer a safe and effective method for hand drying.
Single-use paper towels are the optimal choice.
When compared to other hand drying methods, scientific studies and the World Health Organisation (WHO) recommend paper single use towels as the most hygienic choice. In fact, many healthcare authorities are stipulating that only paper towels be used as the method of hand drying in hospitals.
