Re Door Handle Sanitising system by HandleHygiene


We have been trialling out the above system on different wards for a few months now.
So far the experience has been positive. Door handles were also swabbed and the results have been reassuring.
I believe that this system can contribute in reducing the spread of pathogens, especially in facilities with suboptimal infrastructure.
