GOJO Products Named to Becker’s Hospital Review ‘100 Infection Control Products to Know - 2019’ List

Innovative products and technology offer a total solution for infection control

For the second year in a row, two GOJO products – PURELL® brand HEALTHY SOAP® with CLEAN RELEASE™ Technology and PURELL SMARTLINK™ Electronic Monitoring Solutions – were named to Becker’s Hospital Review list of “100 infection control products to know” for 2019. GOJO is the inventor of PURELL® hand sanitizer and the global leader in hand hygiene solutions.

PURELL® brand HEALTHY SOAP® with CLEAN RELEASE™ Technology is formulated for dry and sensitive skin, and is free of the most common causes of severe skin irritation. The CLEAN RELEASE™ Technology is designed to boost soap performance with its novel surfactant system that reaches deeper into skin’s cracks and crevices to gently remove more soil and germs than regular soap.1 CLEAN RELEASE™ Technology soaps are made with 90 percent biobased content far exceeding the 64 percent standard for biobased handwashes.

PURELL SMARTLINK™ Electronic Monitoring Solutions includes five platforms that automate and standardize hand hygiene monitoring. The Activity Monitoring System tracks soap and sanitizer dispenser activations for real-time performance metrics, while the Technology Partner Network platform allows healthcare facilities to leverage their existing real-time locating systems for person-specific hand hygiene monitoring. The solution can also provide proactive service alerts to optimize dispenser and network performance; clinician-based support; and a mobile application for electronic collation of hand hygiene and personal protective equipment observations.

“In a hospital or other healthcare setting, fighting germs is critical to patient safety,” says John Lerner, GOJO vice president and general manager of healthcare. “We are proud of our inclusion in this distinguished list by a trusted publication in the healthcare industry. We develop innovative products specially formulated to meet the demands of hospitals and other healthcare settings, so providers can focus on what matters most – caring for their patients.”

The list was developed by the Becker's Healthcare editorial team based on nominations and internal research. Companies do not pay and cannot pay for inclusion on this list.
