Accessible & educational

TEAL Stop n’Wash solves the problem of providing hand wash units in areas where there is no access to mains water or drainage.
It can also be used as an educational tool: its synchronised display takes users through the automatic TEAL Stop n’Wash programme and the seven rubbing actions for correct hand washing as laid down by NHS guidelines.
TEAL MD Manty Stanley said: "The average person’s hands carry at least 3,000 different bacteria which once transferred to an object can remain unchanged for up to two weeks at room temperature. This means that not only do medical staff have to be rigorous in their hand hygiene regime but visitors and patients must also have easy access to hand wash facilities to prevent and contain outbreaks from deadly Hospital Acquired Infections (HAIs) such as C-difficile and MRSA.”
