An Taoiseach commends technology company SureWash’s expansion in Seattle
Sean Bay, Sales Director and Co-Founder demonstrating the SureWash technology to An Taoiseach, Enda Kenny TD at the Pacific Science Center

An Taoiseach, Enda Kenny TD visited Seattle, Washington on the 22nd of March to view technology from Irish hygiene company SureWash which was being displayed in an innovative new health and wellness exhibition at the “Wellbody Academy” at the Pacific Science Center.

Dublin-based SureWash have developed an interactive hand-hygiene training system that can save money, time and lives – which the company now intends to leverage in the US market. SureWash’s technology reduces the labor needed to train and audit hand-hygiene compliance and significantly, it promotes effective hand-hygiene techniques which can lead to a reduction in hospital acquired infections and ultimately save lives. An Taoiseach acknowledged SureWash as an example of an Irish technology company that had developed an innovative solution for a global problem.

The importance of hand-hygiene in the US hospital environment should not be underestimated – it is estimated that approximately 100,000 Americans die annually from hospital acquired infections. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimate that 50% of these hospital acquired infections could be prevented by better hand-hygiene – validating the need for SureWash’s technology in the US hospital environment.
