Hand Hygiene

Hand hygiene is a simple act – yet one that can save the lives of your patients and staff.

“Hands are the main pathways of germ transmission during health care,” according to the World Health Organisation. “Hand hygiene is therefore the most important measure to avoid the transmission of harmful germs and prevent healthcare-associated infections (HAIs).”

Whiteley understands the importance of hand hygiene and has developed a range of products and educational programs to reduce the spread of HAIs. Whiteley Hand hygiene products include antibacterial hand sanitisers, hand soaps and hand moisturisers – all of which are manufactured in Australia with full TGA accreditation.

Surface Cleaning & Disinfection

You can’t take infection prevention and control seriously without taking surface cleaning and disinfection seriously. You need to do it regularly – and you need to use the right products. That means your detergents and disinfectants must be free of bacterial contamination and designed for the task you use them for.

Whiteley has built a reputation for being an international leader in surface disinfection. We’ve developed a range of TGA-registered disinfection products that will keep your healthcare facility clean and safe. We continue to do research into surface cleaning and disinfection, so we can deliver even more advanced products in the future.

The Australian Guidelines for the Prevention and Control of Infection in Healthcare say it is “good practice” to “clean frequently touched surfaces with detergent/disinfectant solution at least daily” and “clean general surfaces and fittings when visibly soiled”.

Skincare

Don’t underestimate the importance of skincare. Looking after the skin of patients, aged care residents and healthcare workers is about much more than comfort and appearances – it’s actually a weapon in the war against healthcare-associated infections (HAI’s).

Soft, clean skin is less likely to transmit dangerous bacteria and viruses than cracked, dirty skin.

Whiteley’s range of Dermalux skincare products includes a bed-bathing system and patient care wipes, which are ideal for aged care, palliative care and rehabilitation facilities. The Dermalux range also includes premium hand soaps and a three-in-one shampoo, conditioner and body wash.

Remember: skincare and infection prevention go hand in hand.
