Atlantic Health System officially has the cleanest hands in health care. We recently received the 2018 Hand Hygiene Excellence Award from SC Johnson Professional’s DebMed, an electronic hand hygiene compliance monitoring system. Introduced to our health system three years ago and later rolled out to all of our hospitals, DebMed has helped us achieve cleaner work environments, reduced infection rates and improved patient safety.
