Why Healthcare Facilities Choose Symmetry

Hand hygiene noncompliance is a major cause of healthcare-associated infections (HAIs). The Symmetry® Hand Hygiene Program accounts for the importance of hand hygiene acceptance and provides products that healthcare workers want to use.

One common hand hygiene problem encountered in healthcare facilities is complaints of hand dryness, itchiness, or redness after continued use of hand sanitizer. When these complaints arise, employees, patients and visitors are less likely to practice proper hand hygiene.

Facilities that test Symmetry products overwhelmingly choose Symmetry over other hand hygiene products in quality, fragrance, drying time, feel, and comfort. Symmetry Dispenser

Symmetry matches the quality of its products with its customizable options. Symmetry dispensers are ADA compliant and can be customized with colors, logos, and behavior modification placards to inspire hand hygiene. Customizable education and awareness tools such as signs, posters, and wall charts are also available to assist in creating a culture of hand hygiene.

Symmetry also offers various point-of-care items such as brackets, lanyards, and suction cups for healthcare workers, patients, and visitors needing quick access to hand sanitizer.

Above all, the Symmetry Hand Hygiene Program recognizes that in order to achieve hand hygiene compliance in healthcare facilities, healthcare staff must like the product. If healthcare workers like the hand hygiene products, they will use those products and, as a result, help prevent HAIs.

Contact your Symmetry representative to schedule a Symmetry Challenge and evaluate the Symmetry Hand Hygiene Program against other hand hygiene products.

Eco Packaging 1.25 L Bags

The Eco® Proportioning Program was made with the end-user in mind. Designed for ease of use, Eco Proportioning systems automatically dilute products at the correct dilution rate. The Eco Pro and Eco Element are manufactured with proprietary technology and feature a compact design. All Eco products are super concentrated to reduce labor time and offer superior end-use cost, and several are Green Seal certified.

One unique feature of the Eco Proportioning Program is the Eco packaging. Eco’s 1.25 L bags are hermetically sealed to ensure no contamination. They are spill proof to prevent contact with concentrated product. In each bag there is a metering plug to ensure no tip clogging and highly accurate dilution.

Eco product bags are manufactured with 83% less plastic than rigid containers. These flexible bags take up 118.5 times less landfill space than 1 gallon jugs. Eco bags are also easier to transport and store. They also eliminate product waste, delivering a 99% evacuation rate while saving money.

Buckeye Food Service Products

Cleaning and sanitizing areas in which food is handled is extremely important. If surfaces in food service areas are not properly cleaned and sanitized, chemical hazards and cross-contamination can lead to foodborne illnesses. Foodborne illnesses can often be a result of improper use of cleaning products or use of unsafe cleaning products in food service areas. Buckeye’s Food Service Program promotes a sanitary environment with effective products and procedures for your facility’s food service area. With Buckeye’s food service products, risk of foodborne illnesses is greatly decreased.

Buckeye Food Service Products

Buckeye provides several products specifically designed for food service. Buckeye food service products are concentrated, economical, butyl-free, biodegradable, and packaged in waterproof containers. These products include Dysh concentrated liquid detergent, Sani-Q2™ disinfectant sanitizer, FoodMaster Concentrate heavy-duty cleaner/degreaser, and Liberate® heavy-duty foaming cleaner.

Dysh is a liquid detergent designed for hand washing dishes, glassware, pots, pans, and silverware. FoodMaster Concentrate and Liberate work to get rid of grease and heavy soils on floors, walls, cutting tables, countertops, baking pans, and processing equipment. Sani-Q2 effectively kills Salmonella, disinfecting surfaces exposed to raw food products like meat and poultry.
