Ecolab introduces Nexa, a new hand hygiene dispensing platform that makes it easier to promote good hand-washing practices and reduce the spread of infectious diseases in healthcare facilities.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an estimated 80 percent of all infections are transmitted by hands, and hand washing is the single most effective way to reduce the spread of infectious diseases. Failing to sufficiently wash one’s hands significantly contributes to the spread of foodborne illness outbreaks and also to the 1.7 million healthcare-acquired infections that occur in the U.S. each year.

The Nexa platform can dispense an array of Ecolab hand hygiene products, including liquid and foam hand soaps, lotions, hand sanitizers and body shampoos, all from the same unit, making changing of products easy. Depending upon the product used, Nexa dispensers can be installed near commercial kitchen sinks, in restrooms and public spaces of commercial buildings, and at nurses’ stations, in patient rooms and in public areas of healthcare facilities.

Nexa’s simple design meets ADA guidelines and offers many benefits.
