When classes begin this fall, the University of Dayton master of physician assistant practice program will be the first teaching organization in the United States to outfit students in revolutionary germ-killing apparel. The program’s students will be outfitted in Prime Medical’s SAF-T™ scrubs, an innovative line of bactericidal apparel for healthcare that continuously kills germs on contact.
Prime Medical Launches Line of Bactericidal Soft Surfaces That Continuously Kills 99.9 Percent of Germs on Contact
Prime Medical announced today the launch of its SAF-T™ line of bactericidal soft surfaces for healthcare. This unique line of privacy curtains, bed linens, towels and apparel for patients and staff are made with a patented fabric that harnesses the power of chlorine bleach to continuously kill the colonization of bacteria and viruses with 99.9 percent effectiveness, providing full protection for the life of products.
Thirty local physicians and nurses are now fighting germs in the most revolutionary way, simply by wearing bactericidal lab coats.
We were excited to read that the ACHE is focused on HAIs in Emergency Departments and respectfully submit that Prime Medical has a simple solution. Our SAF-T bed linens, cubicle curtains, patient gowns, lab coats and scrubs kill 99.9% of bacteria and viruses on contact for the life of the product.
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. However, these days he is also fulfilling a very special order: our charitable donation to CURE International.
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.
Each year, health care-associated infections cost health systems millions. The main culprit of transmission is improper hand hygiene prior to touching various surfaces in a patient room.
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?
