Less worry. More care.

When it comes to our loved ones, no distance is too far, and nothing is good enough. This is especially true when they have to go to hospital because of an emergency or a chronic condition. The fear for their health and the anxiety you feel when you hand over control to a health facility grows. The corona pandemic has only contributed to this feeling. How can we be sure that our loved ones are taken care of here? It is a matter very close to our hearts at HARTMANN to relieve you of this worry and support you in this difficult situation.

Anxiety guaranteed

Woman answering the phone and receiving bad news
The phone rings: "Please hurry to the hospital". Five words and our world is turned upside down. Your heart is pounding. What happened? Your knees are weak, take a seat. What's going to happen next? The lump in your throat feels indestructible, but there’s one last question. What can I do? As soon as you get yourself together, you rush to the clinic to do whatever you can. Because uncertainty only grows with the knowledge that from the moment, we have placed our loved ones in professional hands, there is not much we can do to help. We have to be able to count on the fact that they will receive the best possible care and that they will be safe there. We keep a close eye on every doctor and nurse to make sure they are the very best. And we worry about the proper hygiene in the hospital so as not to cause any further problems. And at that moment we look to the left and see: the blue Sterillium® bottle.

Stock up on safety with hand disinfection

At HARTMANN your well-being is always close to our heart. That is why we are committed in many ways to the necessary hygiene measures in hospitals. Not least of all with the CLEAN HOSPITALS initiative we are involved in, and our commitment to the prevention of so-called HAI (hospital acquired infections). Because we know: A rough estimate is that 30 percent of all hospital acquired infections can be prevented by hygiene alone.

The most important measure to prevent the transmission of infectious pathogens is hand disinfection. This should always precede and follow every patient contact in the hospital, as well as aseptic activities, after contact with infectious materials, and when leaving the patient's environment. Exactly for this purpose, we developed Sterillium® for our healthcare professionals, and in the end also for you: So that you can best protect yourself and your loved ones in the hospital – like our professionals do.

How Sterillium® protects us

So, when we go to a hospital and disinfect our hands, we are already doing a great deal to protect ourselves and the hospital patients. A first sensation of safety when the disinfectant covers our hands like a liquid protective glove. Take a deep breath in and you are ready to focus on what is important: To be there for relatives and give them the care they need to get well soon. The professionals will take care of the rest. With the help of HARTMANN.

BUDDY & BUTLER: At your service

To make hand disinfection even more accessible, especially in hospitals, there is e.g. BUDDY & BUTLER. Always at your service, always within reach, so that hand disinfection – especially for our professionals – is possible and easy at any time.
