Abstract

A tracking system/method of hygiene device usage. The system/method involves an RFID reader within a location that automatically detects an entering attendant RFID tag. Respective passive RFID readers and/or RFID dispenser tags coupled to the hygiene devices are activated upon hygiene device activation. All RFID readers are coupled with interface adapters that communicate reader information to a remote location for analysis/reporting. If attendant enters the location, a timer starts to monitor time it takes the attendant to activate the hygiene device in the location. Alternatively, if the attendant activates another hygiene device located just outside the specified location, the timer monitors how long after that activation it takes for the attendant to enter the location. Upon attendant exit, the system/method tracks activation of the hygiene device in the location and prompt departure of attendant, or upon departing the location, he/she promptly activates the hygiene device located outside the location.
