Brenda Brazzell, RN Manager, Infection Prevention & Employee Health, Princeton Baptist Medical Center

“At Princeton Baptist Medical Center, we have observed that employees want to know they are receiving credit for washing their hands. Prior to installation, we were concerned the staff would have hesitations about being monitored. After interacting with the nGage system, they understand the system only reinforces that they are washing their hands, and does not punish them if they fail to wash their hands. We have seen increases in soap and sanitizer dispensing rates in every unit. Having the nGage system has encouraged our employees to wash their hands more frequently, and patients and families have noticed our increased focus on hand hygiene and have followed our staff’s example.”
