ANN ARBOR, Mich., Jan. 31, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Hillsdale Hospital McGuire & MacRitchie Skilled Nursing Facility, Hillsdale, MI, is the first Michigan hospital to implement BioVigil's Electronic Hand Hygiene Solution. The skilled nursing units offer 38 total skilled nursing beds and provide the highest quality of care for short-term rehabilitation residents to ensure the best possible outcome along with long-term care.

BioVigil's Electronic Hand Hygiene Solution, Ann Arbor, MI, provides hospitals the insights they need to empower better decision-making, reduce infections, enhance the patient experience, and exceed the organization's goal for hand hygiene observation requirements.

Hillsdale selected BioVigil because they saw the potential for significant improvements in patient and staff safety. One quality measure tracked by many hospitals is hand hygiene, confirming that team members are always washing their hands at key times during patient care. Manual tracking resulted in 35 hand hygiene observations per unit per month, which would make the hospital's goal of 200 observations per month —a benchmark often used in safety and quality ratings--very difficult to achieve. Using BioVigil, Hillsdale can easily exceed that number.

Hillsdale Hospital advocates for rural hospitals nationwide and recognizes how BioVigil can improve care in smaller facilities: "At Hillsdale Hospital, part of our vision is to lead the nation in defining and advancing the role of rural health providers," Rachel Lott, chief communications officer, said. "As the first hospital in the state to implement BioVigil, we are excited to be on the cutting edge of technology designed to improve patient care and safety, while maximizing our resources by converting a manual process into an automated one."

Hillsdale's Infection Control Officer Randy Holland, RN, BSN, CIC, shared the value BioVigil provides: "BioVigil validates that our employees are performing hand hygiene effectively while providing piece of mind to our residents and their families that our staff are ensuring the first line of defense to prevent infections."

Sanjay Gupta, President, and CEO of BioVigil is pleased that a rural hospital in Michigan is the first to implement BioVigil. "We have a variety of large and small hospitals globally using our solution. It's exciting to be a part of Hillsdale's vision of focusing on improving their patient and staff safety."

Hillsdale went live with BioVigil in their Skilled Nursing facility in December and hopes to adopt the system across the entire campus soon.
