The Importance and Pitfalls of Remote Monitoring Solutions for Water Hygiene

Time: 2:30 pm - 2:55 pm


Over recent years, new microbiological techniques have amplified both the number and types of organisms identified as part of routine water hygiene monitoring. Increased demands are being placed on Estates staff to further develop water hygiene strategies based on clinical risk rather than a site-wide approach.

A variety of techniques are used to maintain water hygiene across healthcare estates, ranging from simple temperature monitoring of hot and cold services, through to secondary disinfection of biocides such as copper-silver ions, hydrogen peroxide and chlorine dioxide. Often these solutions are delivered across the estate, from a single dosing and control point, backed up by manual testing and monitoring at sentinel outlets across the estate.

In this presentation, Alistair Cameron, CEO of Scotmas Group, a leading provider of chlorine dioxide based disinfection solutions to the NHS examines how new low cost, multi-parameter monitoring equipment available from a variety of manufacturers can be integrated into secondary disinfection systems in order to provide a proportionate response to microbiological challenges in different clinical risk areas.
