Surgical site infections cause significant morbidity and mortality in the postoperative period. The opening of the operating room door disrupts its filtered atmosphere, increasing contamination above the wound. We conducted a study of traffic in the operating room as a risk for infections. This is an observational study of recorded behaviors in the operating room. Data collected included the number of people entering/exiting, the role of these individuals, and the cause for the event. A total of 3071 door openings were recorded in 28 cases. Traffic varied from 19 to 50 events per hour across specialties – according to a study
Healthcare workers & infection control
Dispensers utilize electronics to capture hand-cleaning activity on a group basis, as opposed to requiring employees to wear a badge and be tracked individually. It draws on an evidence-based, statistically valid algorithm that determines how many times workers should have cleaned their hands, based on hospital-specific data such as a number of patients in the unit and nurse-to-staff patient ratio, to derive a compliance rate.
Patient tracking systems
With advances in wireless communication, the industry is moving towards Bluetooth Low Energy devices which offers more flexibility and functions when compared to RFID patient tracking systems. Our Bluetooth patient tracking systems offer accuracy of 5 square meters, do not require any wiring. The patient tracking system can also be used to understand the physical activity of the patient in old age homes
Toilet hygiene & odor levels.
Hospital monitoring made easy – Improving the patient experience includes that of looking at the hygiene and odor levels in the public & private services industry. We have built sensor modules that detect people’s movement in washrooms, their cleanliness, presence of odor gases, water levels, etc that would significantly prevent diseases and improve hygiene levels.
Operation theatre, stores & infection control
Hospital monitoring – hand hygiene and infection control
Deployment of devices that detect alcohol vapors, or radiofrequency identification to determine whether Hand Hygiene has occurred. In one study, each nurse wore a credit card-sized badge containing a solid-state metal-oxide semiconductor that detects alcohol vapors (whereas, we deploy long-range sensors). The alcohol sensor in the badge is activated at the doorway to the patient room by a sensor on the doorframe. Following the performance of HH with an alcohol-based product, the worker places their hand near the badge sensor. If alcohol is detected within 8 s of room entry or exit, the badge light turns green, and it emits a ‘ping’ sound. If alcohol is not detected, the badge light turns red, and the badge beeps.
Multifunctional wireless sensor modules deployed in stores, operation theater, wards & casualty departments. Temperature, humidity, door opening, intruder detection to aid infection control in hospitals.
