EASY COMPLIANCE curtain program
Many patients die every year after contracting hospital acquired infections (HAIs). The tragedy of these avoidable deaths can devastate families and ruin a healthcare facility’s reputation.
Rigorous disinfection and hand hygiene protocols must be followed to prevent the spread of pathogens, such as antibiotic resistant bacteria, which can thrive on all kinds of surfaces. Because busy hospital environments are rapidly re-contaminated, most surfaces in the patient zone are cleaned at least daily. However, unless visibly stained, traditional linen privacy curtains are often overlooked and remain invisibly contaminated for several months before they are changed. Linen is a soft and absorbent surface that is readily colonized by pathogens, and privacy curtains are frequently touched during the care of patients.
Although following best practice when it comes to changing curtains can help to reduce potential exposure to pathogens, traditional laundering programs are difficult to manage, track, and audit. That’s why more and more of the world’s leading hospitals are switching to Hygenica’s Easy ComplianceTM program.
Hygenica’s Easy Compliance program offers the following unique advantages over the use of traditional linen curtains:
