Altra Hand Hygiene Program

Altra understands the importance of hand hygiene acceptance and manufactures products that healthcare workers want to use.

Acceptance = Compliance = Lower HAIs

The Altra Hand Hygiene Program includes Behavior Modification Tools, Education and Awareness Tools, and Point of Care Tools designed to maximize and inspire hand hygiene opportunities in healthcare facilities.


"Many HAIs (healthcare-associated-infections) are transmitted by healthcare personnel, and hand hygiene is a primary means to reduce these infections."
