When hospitals or clinics are constructing or renovating facilities, installing this innovative hand-washing system can highlight the institution’s commitment to hygiene and patient safety.
The dual sensor hands-free soap and water dispensing faucet is sink-mounted, is easy to use, can be readily installed, and can be made at relatively low cost without requiring additional battery power. Such an integrated, touchless system assists in cleanliness, conserves energy and resources while reducing transmission of diseases.
According to the CDC, medical staff clean their hands LESS THAN HALF OF THE TIMES THEY SHOULD to prevent the spread of infection. This lack of compliance with hand-washing protocols contributes to the spread of infections in hospitals, a problem the CDC estimates afflicts one in 25 hospital patients.
With such serious concern over this compliance issue, why are we introducing MORE bacteria through touching common surfaces?
The Widespread use of Sensor Technology Faucets in our homes, public spaces and healthcare settings could prevent the spread of infection
The Touchless Water and Liquid Soap Dispensing Faucet was designed by an experienced Nurse Manager in collaboration with facility leaders at a major medical center in California. It improves on existing touchless hand-washing faucets by giving users the ability to control the flow of soap and water. A small hydropower generator eliminates the need to replace batteries, ensuring 100% availability for the vital job of washing hands.
Inventor Sarah Montague, R.N., has worked for nearly a decade at several hospitals and medical centers in the San Francisco Bay Area. As a nurse and nurse manager, she has experienced and witnessed how difficult it can be for busy nurses and other medical staff to wash their hands adequately after each patient visit.
Through her own observation and by talking with colleagues, Montague developed a detailed and precise understanding of the shortcomings of currently available faucet and soap dispensersand a solution, the Touchless Water and Liquid Soap Dispensing Faucet.
There are other hands-free soap and water dispensers on the market. However, by applying her on-the-floor experience and the insights of the facilities and procurement staff at her hospitals, Montague has invented an appliance that can meet hospitals space issues and infection control requirements while providing staff with an effective and convenient hand-washing solution.

I’m an R.N. who has worked for nearly a decade at hospitals and medical centers in the San Francisco Bay Area. In my roles as Nurse and Nurse Manager, I became gravely concerned about the amount of Hospital Acquired Infections that occur. I also know how difficult it can be for busy nurses, doctors and other medical staff to wash their hands adequately after each patient visit. I invented the Touchless Water and Liquid Soap Dispensing Faucet in collaboration with a major Northern Californian Medical Facility to decrease infection rates and increase compliance with hand-washing guidelines.
I would love to talk with you about how we can bring about a new era in infection control in healthcare settings.
