The Importance of Infection Control in a Post COVID World

In the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic, infection control in healthcare settings has never been more crucial. We’ve gained a sobering understanding of how rapidly infectious diseases can spread, prompting healthcare professionals to be extra vigilant about hygiene protocols, particularly in hospitals, nursing homes, and home health settings where the stakes are high.

One significant concern is the risk of cross-contamination, particularly in the use of shared facilities such as commodes. Cross-contamination can lead to the rapid spread of disease, jeopardizing the health of patients and healthcare providers alike. So, how do we address this threat effectively?

Risks of Cross Contamination & Spills

Healthcare environments are breeding grounds for various microbes, posing a constant threat of infection. Shared facilities, like commodes, are potential hotspots for pathogen spread. An overlooked spill or a lapse in cleaning protocol can turn these sites into launchpads for disease transmission.

In addition, spills not only risk infection but also pose hazards like slips and falls. Both are particularly concerning in elderly care facilities, where inhabitants are vulnerable to serious injury and disease.

Cleanwaste’s Approach to Infection Control

Simply put, Cleanwaste’s Sani-Bag+® can effectively improve cross-contamination prevention.

In addition to their clinical study, Cleanwaste has published a white paper titled “Avoiding the Problem of Commode Cross Contamination: An Economical and Time-Saving Strategy”.
