Mobile devices like tablets and handheld monitoring equipment are becoming more and more visible in the healthcare industry, providing easy access to patient data and secure channels for peer collaboration.
But, according to a new study, approximately 70% of healthcare workers’ mobile devices harbor dangerous bacteria.
Because these pieces of technology are routinely handled in conjunction with contamination, placed near faces, and housed in warm, dark pockets, they breed disease, including antibiotic-resistant superbugs. Over 2 million patients in the United States contract these expensive and hard-to-treat infections.
Proper disinfection, cleaning and sanitation of this (and all) equipment is absolutely necessary. It is equally essential that these processes are tracked and recorded as they are completed as well as routinely scheduled.
However, just within this past decade, hospitals and healthcare facilities relied only on paper-based reporting for their asset-tracking needs.
