Bio-Protect Your Healthcare Facility - Antimicrobial Surface Treatment


Medical facilities face a tremendous task of preventing the spread of bacteria and infections. Even though most hospitals and medical offices excersise the best care in cleaning and disinfecting their facilities, surfaces that are touched repeatedly still get contaminated between cleanings.

When a patient gets an infection while being treated in a hospital, nursing home, outpatient surgery center or dialysis clinic, it is considered a healthcare associated infection or a hospital acquired infection. These infections are a major public health problem. Patients can get them from routine care, surgery, as a complication from medical devices such as ventilators, catheters, and lines, or as a side effect of the overuse of antibiotics.

Americans get an estimated 1.7 million healthcare-associated infections in the U.S. annually, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Each year these infections:

- Cause about 99,000 deaths
- Cost from $35.7 to $45 billion in additional healthcare costs annually.

While these infections have different causes and origins, many of them are a result of bacterial cross-contamination of surfaces. One of the most known categories of bacteria is MRSA – read more about it here – which is rapidly becoming a global health threat.

Bio-Protect is the perfect solution.

When applied to a surface or incorporated into a material, Bio-Protect creates a Micro-biostatic Antimicrobial Coating on the surface that inhibits odor causing bacteria, mold and mildew.
