You can’t manage what you can’t measure!
Take a breath of safe air!
We take on average 20,000 breaths per day. Breathing is a subconscious effort that in today’s healthcare environments could mean life or death.
As of August 23rd, 2021, there have been over 565,000 pneumonia deaths in the United States.
The transmission of viruses like COVID-19 and the Delta Virus are changing Healthcare cleaning and disinfection procedures forever. Increased hygiene protocol, single-use of items, and environmental services are essential to protecting patients and staff.
Healthcare professionals are on the frontline of this raging war. They knowingly come face to face with many pathogens on their mission to help people heal and recover. But like any war, knowing what you are up against is half the battle. The other half is knowing how to defeat it; therefore, measuring what needs to be managed is essential.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an estimated 648,000 people in the U.S. develop infections during a hospital stay, and about 75,000 die from HAI’s.
Aerosols transmit a number of these pathogens, which are harder to control and easily settle on surfaces. Diseases like COVID-19, Influenza, Norovirus, and Tuberculosis, once transmitted in the air, can be a source of an outbreak in hospitals and clinics.
Many factors constitute the survivability of microorganisms in the air, such as moisture and atmospheric pollutants. Under certain environmental conditions viruses, bacteria, or fungi survive.
Cleaning Surfaces. Is this enough?
Healthcare facilities cannot run without Environmental service companies. They are an essential part of the process. But what happens when contaminated particles in the air settle onto clean surfaces?
The success of the cleaning or sterilization is compromised.
There is a symbiotic relationship regarding disinfection excellence between environmental services and managed disinfection programs. We mentioned earlier that Environmental service is a necessary procedure for the disinfection process. Still, they do not have the equipment or the system to measure and validate if a healthcare environment is safe for patients or staff.
The need to measure the levels of contamination in healthcare environments is rising every day. And DisinfectWell has partnered with companies producing world-leading technology to create a cleaner and safer environment for hospitals.
These innovative systems will help healthcare facilities manage air and surfaces, enhancing the cleaning and disinfection process and mitigating the microbial contamination between air and surfaces.
How our unique system mitigates pathogens in the air and on surfaces.
Airborne transmission is a primary vector of the spread of viruses and bacteria in hospitals.
Many microorganisms from infectious persons, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning can spread infectious particles throughout a hospital, exposing many individuals. Because airborne particles can stay in the air for more extended periods, it is vital to have systems to help you identify and mitigate their presence.
Droplet transmission is a major source of contamination to individuals also. Expelled particles from infectious persons fall onto surfaces daily, exposing staff, patients, and visitors to contagious diseases that can cause them harm or death.
DisinfectWell catches and kills microorganisms that are in the air. Notwithstanding disinfecting the air we also test the air and surfaces before and after disinfection. This comprehensive approach for validation ensures the proper disinfection.
