a unified team
to battle Healthcare
Disinfection in your environment
The infection prevention battle is fought on many fronts throughout healthcare facilities. Infection Preventionists, OR Directors, Environmental Services Directors and their teams all work together to help ensure the safest environment possible for their patients. Yet HAIs persist despite everyone’s best efforts.
The rising impact of HAIs on bottom line and reputation
Each HAI costs a facility approximately $25,000 in re-treatment, fines and other associated costs . And that doesn’t take into the account the toll HAIs can have on a hospital’s reputation and future prospects. CFOs and CQOs are all too familiar with the HAI burden.
The progression of environmental disinfection
Experts agree that careful cleaning and disinfection of environmental surfaces are essential elements of effective infection prevention programs. However, traditional manual cleaning and disinfection practices in hospitals have been shown to be insufficient, but choosing the right technology to support your efforts should not be difficult. See why more hospitals choose XENEX as their standard of care for environmental hygiene.
