Surface contamination is especially dangerous for facilities with vulnerable users, such as long-term care facilities (LTCFs), where as many as many as 380,000 residents die annually from harmful bacteria like MRSA. Despite this death toll, many facilities continue to rely on preventative methods that have proven insufficient, including hand washing and disinfection protocols.
InPro’s other antimicrobial products zero in on the critical contamination battlegrounds of handrails and privacy curtains:
- SureContact handrails incorporate Sanitized Zinc Pyrithione non-leaching technology to help eliminate microorganisms. This ingredient inactivates harmful microbes, creating a permanently protected surface. This physical mode of action does not promote microbe cell mutation and does not leach into the surrounding environment.
- Shield by Panaz privacy curtains incorporate a silane based non-leaching technology to help eliminate microorganisms. The physical mode of action does not promote microbe cell mutation and provides around the clock protection for the life of the curtain.
