Gel Dispenser Holders Enhance Hand Hygiene

Since hand hygiene failures are often about missed opportunities, why not provide as many convenient opportunities as possible for your staff to wash their hands? The company that makes our hand gel also offers a holder that attaches directly to the patient tray table. It's a can't-miss reminder for physicians and staff, who otherwise would have to walk across the room to reach the gel dispensers on the countertops. Our staff uses these religiously.
