Bringing Together Infection Control & Patient Safety
Until now, behavioral health facilities have had to choose between infection control and patient safety. The revolutionary stainless steel GOJO LTX Behavioral Health Dispensing System addresses this problem, as well as others, to create a dispensing system that not only helps create a safer environment for patients, it also provides access to proper hand hygiene where you need it most.

- Flat surfaces and gaps create anchor points for patient ligature
- Lack of output control on manual dispensers can allow intentional ingestion by patients
- Plastic dispensers can be broken and weaponized
- Heavy-gauge 304 stainless steel constructions is incredibly durable and eliminates the threat of weaponization.
- Sloped top surface and rounded corners help eliminate anchor points and sharp edges.
- Robust, barrel-style lock and sliding lock plate prevent ingress.
- Protective internal shroud at the output location reduces the potential for ingress and contraband storage.
- Time-delayed output control helps prevent intentional misuse of product.
- Patented internal anti-ligature mechanisms reduce the potential for self-harm from small diameter objects.
