Soft surfaces have traditionally been one of the bigger challenges to sanitize in the health care environment. One study found that 92 percent of privacy curtains have been found contaminated with infectious bacteria within one week of laundering. Yet another study cites that as much as 60 percent of nursing and physician attire can be a source of nosocomial infections.
Now, Prime Medical, in partnership with Clorox Professional Products Company, is introducing hospital privacy curtains, scrubs and lab coats that harness the sanitizing effects of sodium hypochlorite-based bleach to help make these soft surfaces part of the solution in reducing health care-associated infections (HAIs).

Healthcare Associated Infections (HAIs) have been in the news a lot lately. There is a clear need for innovative solutions to the problem. Best practices such as hand hygiene, and protective gear can only go so far. Soft surfaces can become a key weapon in the fight against these deadly infections.
We have had a strong start to our year. Our product line is growing and our team is busier than ever. Wayne Wilson, who oversees manufacturing, is staying on his toes managing our ever-expanding line of products.

To say that healthcare associated infections (HAIs) are bad news is an understatement. They cost millions of dollars, cause pain and suffering to patients and take a toll on healthcare delivery. HAIs can be preventable by disinfecting hard surfaces and instruments. However, they can be tough to fight.

The fight against healthcare associated infections is multifaceted. So many factors to be considered when your a medical professional working with patients. How do you keep yourself safe as well as your patients and the public?
