A recent 13-month study conducted by Medical Mutual of Ohio and GOJO was the first to prove a direct link between the availability of a comprehensive hand hygiene program and a reduction in healthcare insurance claims tied to hand hygiene preventable illnesses.1 The program - the PURELL ADVANCED WORKFORCE SOLUTION™ - reduced related claims by over 24%, AND reduced absenteeism by over 13%. This reduction in claims means that implementation of the PURELL ADVANCED WORKFORCE SOLUTION™ pays for itself with hard cost savings.
