Studies have shown that less than 50% of environmental surfaces in patient care rooms are properly cleaned and disinfected. Evidence strongly suggests that cross contamination of microorganisms from environmental surfaces is directly related to patient infections. High-touch surfaces such as bed rails, bed surfaces, tables, fluid poles, door knobs, and supply trolleys have all been identified as having the greatest potential for transmission of pathogens.
Founded on a legacy of electrostatic science and technology, the Infection Control System eliminates traditional disinfectant methods by providing a mobile, touchless, safer, and more cost-effective approach to environmental surface disinfection.
The slow, labour-intensive process of wiping surfaces with disinfectant is a thing of the past. Now, with the electrostatic application system, one person can disinfect large-scale surface areas quickly. How fast? An entire room in minutes and 5,000 sq. m. per hour
The Electrostatic Systems place a positive ( + ) charge on the liquid droplets as they leave the spray nozzle. The dispersed droplets spread out more evenly and seek out a negative ( – ) or neutrally charged surface. The end result is that the disinfectant is more targeted, provides more uniform coverage with less waste and like a magnet, attracted to a surface with remarkable force.
With fewer man-hours required to disinfect your facilities, you can reduce labour costs up to 45%. Whats more, the precision delivery of the system requires far less disinfectant to do the job, so you will save on chemical costs as well.
Those involved in the prevention and control of preventable infections require a balanced approach of cost and quality to improve outcomes. As environmental surface contamination and healthcare-acquired infections have become more defined, the electrostatic disinfectant application system presents an effective, approved and cost effective alternative to facility disinfection procedures.
