Hand towel solution helps fight infection

The new Scott Control Rolled Hand Towel solution from Kimberly-Clark Professional brings the latest in hygiene innovation to healthcare cleaning professionals, helping the fight against hospital acquired infections (HAIs).

Continuing pressure on budgets in the healthcare sector means efficiency must be pursued – but not at the expense of good hand hygiene compliance, which is critical to maintaining high standards of infection control and preventing HAIs. 

Scott Control Rolled Hand Towel offers the best of both worlds by delivering an uncompromised clean enabling healthcare teams to achieve elevated hygiene outcomes and efficiency at the same time. 

Made with patented Airflex Fabric Technology and eucalyptus fibre, Scott Control Rolled Hand Towel is softer and more absorbent, so fewer towels are needed for a hygienic hand dry delivering efficiency with quick and effective drying.  

“About 20-30 per cent of HAIs are preventable, and research shows that the number prevention method is good hand hygiene; however, staff compliance can be a challenge for healthcare facilities,” says Sophie Rice, EMEA healthcare segment marketing manager for Kimberly-Clark Professional. 

Towel dispensing is efficient and hygienic, with users only touching the sheet they use. The never-run-out feature ensures a continuous rolled towel supply. The stub roll is used to the full with normal single sheet dispensing until the roll is finished.  It does not feed twice, and the transition to the new roll is seamless, with no overlap, which maximises efficiency and control budgets. 

The Scott Control Rolled System is available in white and black dispensers and both standard size roll and slimroll, a slimmer and smaller format, ideal for limited space.
