A hospital chain was looking for a more effective program for cleaning patient rooms while meeting stringent standards for reducing the spread of hospital-acquired infections (HAI)

Forty-four percent of patient rooms contain pathogens including C. Diff after cleaning with traditional dust mops and cleaning cloths. Standard laundering does not effectively sterilize these reusable products, and may actually increase the risk of further spreading harmful pathogens.

Maintex worked with the hospital chain to evaluate several possible solutions and develop a new program utilizing high-quality disposable microfiber products specifically developed for acute and long-term health care facilities. These sturdy single-use cloths and mops improve facility safety while decreasing instances of hospital-acquired infections (HAI) in patient and staff environments – all while reducing costs!
