Are You Infection Control & Prevention Savvy?

infection_control_blogNow more than ever is the time for health care providers and facilities to take the necessary steps to prevent cross contamination and the spread of infectious diseases, and in the process save countless patients from unnecessary exposure to potentially harmful, if not fatal contaminants.   Infection control and prevention is an essential part of the infrastructure of healthcare and absolutely critical during the height of cold and flu season.  The CDC (Center for Disease Control) reports that each year, 5% to 20% of U.S. residents get the flu (an influenza virus infection) with many of the affected seeking medical care in ambulatory healthcare settings like pediatricians’ or primary care physicians’ offices or urgent-care clinics.  More than 200,000 people, on average, are hospitalized each year for flu-related complications.  Moreover, a study conducted in 2014 by the CDC stated that an estimated 722,000 healthcare-associated infection or HAIs were documented in U.S. acute care hospitals in 2011.  Of those 722,000 documented cases about 75,000 of those patients with HAIs died during their hospitalizations.** The statistics are staggering and prompts the question, “what can we do?”

At Danlee Medical Products we place a high priority on infection control and prevention and offer more than a few competitively priced hospital-grade medical cleaning solutions to ensure you emerge victorious while fighting the good fight.  One of our top-selling infection control and prevention products is brought to you by Protex.  These hospital-grade disinfectant sprays and wipes are an exceptionally convenient all-in-one cleaner and germicidal disinfectant.  Effective against a veritable slew of pathogens like MRSA, HIV, E.coli and Staph to name a few, Protex brand sprays and wipes eliminate the need for multiple disinfectants and germicidal solutions with its varying contact times in one product.  What is contact time?  According to the CDC Guidelines for Disinfection and Sterilization in Healthcare Settings, overall contact time is the time it takes a disinfectant to eliminate all microorganisms on a product’s master label.**  Once you’ve donned the appropriate protective apparel for handling the Protex disinfectant sprays or wipes the rest is easy.  Simply wipe down your non-porous surfaces, medical equipment, vinyl exam tables and the like and let this powerful hospital-grade disinfectant do the work.  In only 15 seconds 99.9% of bacteria are effectively eliminated.  Should you leave the germicidal disinfectant on for an additional 45 seconds (1 full minute) then you’ve destroyed HIV.  In as little as 4 minutes contact time you’ve annihilated MRSA and E.coli with this medical-grade germicidal workhorse sanitizer and disinfectant.

Another top-selling selection from our competitively priced hospital-grade medical cleaning products for infection control and prevention is brought to you by PDIPDI Sani-Cloths® wipes are specifically designed with bright, color-coded labeling indicating the differing levels of contact time in relation to the number of microorganisms killed while eliminating the guess-work.  After the appropriate protective apparel has been put on for handling some of the Sani-Cloths® wipes, simply apply and allow the germicidal disinfectant to ensure environmental decontamination.  Fast contact time allows for a quick room turnover, which is ideal for daily use in fast-paced environments that require quick turnover times, like primary care physician’s offices, dental offices, hospital emergency rooms or urgent care facilities.

Danlee Medical Products is here to help you fight the good fight to prevent costly healthcare-associated infection treatment, which can be as much as $36,000 per instance.  By preventing just one, an efficacious infection control and prevention program could pay for itself for an entire year.  At Danlee Medical we understand the requirements involved to properly maintain healthcare facilities and proudly provide the competitively priced hospital-grade medical cleaning products to help guard against HAIs while bolstering your infection control and prevention program; superlative for any healthcare provider or setting.
