Touch and Go: Examining High-Touch Surfaces and Hospital-Acquired Infections

How many times do you touch the privacy curtains in the pre-op or PACU? How many times per day do you think those curtains get touched? Do you know how clean they are, or how often they get changed out? In today’s conversation with Karen Goelst, Founder and CEO at KleenEdge, we’re talking about high-touch surfaces, how they correlate to hospital acquired infections, and the downstream consequences of design. We’ll also look at what techonologies can be leveraged to collect data to help improve our patient outcomes.
