In Healthcare, where Infection Control standards are expected to be the highest, it is estimated that over 50% of the surfaces in a room are left uncleaned, sanitized, or disinfected after a daily cleaning. – US Department of Health (CDC)
Close to 100,000 people die each year from Hospital Acquired Infections, and 1 out of 2 infectious outbreaks exhibit some form of antibiotic resistance. According to the CDC, the annual cost of HAIs is an estimated $28 Billion. To encourage hospitals to prevent infections, the Hospital-Acquired Conditions Reduction Program will reduce Medicare’s payments by 1% for HAIs.
A 2017 study published in the “American Journal of Infection Control, shows that floors harbor dangerous germs and should be reclassified as “critical” areas requiring more thorough cleaning and disinfecting. Proper cleaning and disinfecting is a matter of safety as well as an important financial protocol.
Cavicide is corrosive and dries out the leather on dental offices chairs. Some dental offices on the east coast have switched to EvaClean because they were replacing their chairs as frequently as once a year because they were drying out so fast. They have been very happy with the results after switching to a less corrosive PurTabs solution.
Dental offices typically use cavicide to disinfect their facilities. Our equipment with the correct concentration and settings will disinfect TB just as effectively as cavicide does.
It’s been 10 years since the CDC released its last guidelines for infection prevention for dental care settings, and the removal of the “spray-wipe-spray” protocol in the guidelines. Current guidelines state that environmental surfaces should be cleaned and then disinfected after contamination from dental procedures. Since then, many dental teams have stopped spraying disinfectants and switched to using presaturated wipes.
However, the effectiveness of the wipes can be reduced in some cases by improper use of the product. The most common error is leaving the container partially open, which allows the wipes to dry out. In time, some of the solution from the wipes may settle at the bottom of the container. Sometimes cleaners will pour the solution into another container of wipes, which could affect the concentration of the solution in the next container.
