How much are Healthcare Acquired
Infections (HAIs) costing your facility?

Healthcare-Acquired Infections (HAIs) are becoming increasingly common. Due to an increase in invasive procedures and a growing resistance to antibiotics, HAIs have increased by 36% in the last 20 years. The human cost is over 99,000 deaths per year, which represent a 5% death rate for HAIs. On average HAIs add an additional 8 days in the ICU and increases hospital stays for 9 days.

How much does that mean for your facility?

HAIs in hospitals alone result in an estimated $28- $33 billion in excess medical costs every year. That is an estimated cost of up to $32,000 per licensed bed in the U.S. For an average 180 bed facility, that equals an additional $5,760,000 in direct cost. Under the new Affordable Care Act (ACA), Hospitals will lose reimbursement based on a criteria that is heavily weighted on HAIs and patient satisfaction.

INFECTIOUS AGENT

A microbial organism with
the ability to cause disease.

SUSCEPTIBLE HOST

A person who cannot resist a microorganism invading the body, multiplying, and resulting in infection.

PORTAL OF ENTRY

An opening allowing
the microorganism
to enter the host.

MODE OF TRANSMISSION

Method of transfer that the organism moves from one place to another.

PORTAL OF EXIT

A place of exit providing
a way for a microorganism
to leave the reservoir.

RESERVOIR

A place within which microorganisms can
thrive and reproduce.

ONE APPLICATION – PER YEAR

The healthcare industry is challenged with providing the best possible care for their patients and a safe environment for health care workers. Micro-organisms are the most prevalent and potent pollutants in the indoor environment and their role as causers and aggravators of disease conditions are well documented.

Healthcare facilities, by the very nature of their operation, expose patients and staff to microbial contamination that can lead to infectious disease. Stethoscopes, flooring, doorknobs, curtains, cabinets and the "forgotten" surfaces can potentially transfer contaminating organisms from surface to surface and person to person.

MicrobeCare treatment is based on a unique antimicrobial technology which is odorless, colorless, NON-LEACHING, long-lasting and effectively controls bacteria, fungi, algae and yeast. Because it does not dissipate, it retains its full antimicrobial strength for the life of the surface to which it is applied. It controls mircro-organisms, slows the degredation of products, and reduces odors and stains.

  • Interpretive Note:
    Our list of microorganisms which this biocide has been shown to be effective against these specific types of organisms is only the starting point and avoidance of future creation of resistant organisms, long term efficacy, damage to treated surfaces and many other factors are much more important. Biocides are strictly regulated in the US and registered with the EPA. Misuse of a biocide is illegal.

THIS 3 STEP PROGRAM

will enable you to improve patient outcomes and lower your operating cost.

We start by testing
and verification of the Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) levels on your equipment.

Then we use our newly developed antimicrobial called MicrobeCare that bonds to equipment surfaces and lowers bio-burden rates.
The unique bonding properties make it
different than any other antimicrobials available.

Then we apply our unique software, Bac–Track, that monitors these levels on an easy to read dashboard dedicated to your facility. It also allows you to monitor by department or equipment category to pinpoint your problem areas.

DATA AVAILABLE IN REAL TIME

TRACK YOUR AVERAGE ATP LEVELS

TRACK BACTERIA LEVELS BY DEPARTMENT

MONITOR ATP LEVELS BY MONTH

MONITOR EQUIPMENT CATEGORIES
WITH THE HIGHEST ATP LEVELS

LET US PROVE IT TO YOU!

We will send an authorized applicator into
your facility to test and treat ten pieces of equipment.

After our initial reading with an Adensoine Triphosphate (ATP) meter, we will treat the equipment with a patented EPA-approved solution called MicrobeCare™. This formula reduces the amount of bacteria and viruses on your equipment. This breakthrough was proven effective for one year with only one application.

MicrobeCare™ is not designed to replace any of your current cleaning procedures. The ATP monitor will provide a good benchmark of how effective your current procedures are.
By adding MicrobeCare™, your bacteria and virus levels will dramatically decrease, making it a safer environment for your caregivers and patients. This could reduce the chances of cross contamination and healthcare acquired infections related to contaminated equipment.
