A survey conducted by the CDC shows that almost half of physicians blame antibiotic resistant infections on poor hygiene practices. While healthcare professionals can follow the guidelines recommended by the CDC for proper handwashing and universal gloving, this can only limit the spread of bacteria to an extent if one isn’t disinfecting the items that they regularly handle.
GloTran’s dry low-temperature processing is ideal for high-touch items like cellphones and pagers carrying pathogens that have the potential to cause AMR.
Surface disinfection is crucial for infection control. Even non-critical instruments can carry bacteria that’s likely to wreak havoc if not properly disinfected. That’s not to mention the millions of bacteria present on pens, pagers, and cell phones – items that we touch regularly and don’t think much about it. These everyday items can be a breeding ground for harmful bacteria, and transmission is almost inevitable when handling patients.
Antibiotic resistance can occur because of several factors. Whether it’s a patient acquiring an infection in a healthcare setting or poor use of antibiotics, why not prevent infection at the source?
GloTran’s vaporized hydrogen peroxide significantly reduces the number of antibiotic resistant organisms through dry low-temperature disinfection. With the ability to disinfect non-critical instruments as well as electronics, GloTran is the final piece of an all-encompassing infection control solution.
