Combating Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAI) is a multi-faceted effort that involves almost every aspect in each facility, from staff to equipment and policies and procedures. A CDC study, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, regarding HAI found that 25.6 percent of all HAI occurrences were linked to contaminated medical devices.
One of the most effective ways to target healthcare-associated infections (HAI) is to go right to the source – the DNA and RNA of the actual organisms, themselves. Through new innovations in ultra-violet (UV) light technology, scientists have developed a proven method of harnessing these powerful rays and positioning them in healthcare facilities to save thousands of lives and billions of dollars at hospitals and medical clinics.
WARWICK, R.I. - Hospital acquired infections (HAI) exact a heavy toll on health care institutions. Each year, approximately 722,000 patients acquire a HAI resulting in extended hospital stays, readmissions, and, in over 10% of the cases, death.
In their efforts to address more effective practices in hospital disinfection procedures, Clorox Healthcare and CME have partnered to bring the Clorox Healthcare Optimum-UV System to healthcare facilities across the country.
Preventing hospital-acquired infections (HAI) is a top priority for healthcare providers. While equipment such as ventilators and catheters are top of mind during infection prevention discussions, there are other product solutions that you may not have thought of. Here are six unique product solutions that will help control environmental risk factors for HAI.
