The Ultimate Tool for Elimination of Bacteria*┼ the Hospital Environment.
Clostridium difficile – was estimated to cause almost half a million infections in the United States in 2011, and 29,000 died within 30 days of the initial diagnosis. Those most at risk are people, especially older adults, who take antibiotics and also get medical care. CDC provides guidelines and tools to the healthcare community to help prevent Clostridium difficile infections as well as provides resources to help the public safeguard their own health. http://www.cdc.gov/HAI/organisms/cdiff/Cdiff_infect.html
TOMI resolves these issues with SteraMist™ powered by Binary Ionization Technology® (BIT™), used for when your healthcare facility wants to go above, beyond, under, and around disinfecting sprays and wipes with an effective broad-spectrum surface disinfectant. SteraMist™ BIT™ reduces risk of cross contamination between treated surfaces that is associated with wipes, sponges and rags. Using SteraMist™ and such preventative action reduces exposure to bacteria* and viruses** on treated surfaces.
Additionally, the effectiveness of SteraMist™ BIT™ is not diminished by corners, shadows, difficult to reach areas, or line of sight issues; meeting the disinfection needs for Infection Disease Doctors, Hospital Epidemiologists, Infection Prevention Nurses, Environmental Services, Facilities & Maintenance Professionals, and for Emergency Preparedness.
Superbugs Require a Super Solution+. Implement the following SteraMist™ BIT™ Best Practices into Your Current Terminal Clean Protocols.
Single Hospital Room (i.e. 75m3): Simple manual cleaning procedures has been documented to leave behind 30%-60% of surface pathogens bacteria. Creating a terminal clean protocol using the SteraMist™ Surface Unit* will effectively eliminate pathogens* and bacteria* from hard, nonporous surfaces because it’s a fast acting disinfectant complete in seven minutes after application. This is ideal for disinfecting high touch and hard to clean surfaces such as:
door handles | light switches | toilets | bed rails | telephones | bedside tables | heart monitors | computers | ventilators/respirators | wheel chairs | IV poles
Multiple Bed Hospital Rooms (i.e. 181m3): Larger sized, multiple 4-bed hospital rooms probably have a greater likelihood to spread disease among patients. It’s recommended to disinfect high touch surfaces with two SteraMist™ Surface Units* for quick room turnover. Or one SteraMist™ Environment System┼ which have multiple treatment applicators per unit that can be used for effective complete room disinfection, including those rooms that are suspected to contain C. diff spores.
Hospital Ward (i.e. 407m3): A typical hospital ward may include 10 hospital beds, a nurses’ station, “crash trolleys”, and equipment. Integrating two SteraMist™ Environment Systems┼ for complete room disinfection, fast application and minimal down time is ideal for this larger area of space. Scalable technology that is able to use multiple units/applicators for multiple spaces, zones, and nooks, the SteraMist™ Environment System┼ makes whole room disinfection easier.
Operating Theatre (i.e.104 m3): Some modern operating theatres are spacious and contain an assortment of sensitive medical devices and equipment. Disinfecting with the SteraMist™ Surface System* is lightweight, easy to transport, and capable of achieving reliable disinfection. For use on all hard non-porous surfaces on high touch equipment after each surgical case to eliminate the colonization of bacteria*┼ on treated surfaces. TOMI’s SteraMist™ Environment System┼ is for use of effective whole room treatment in just over 75 minutes for a room allowing for disinfection at the end of each turnover shift, which is usually essential for all protocols, including:
surgical lights | viewing monitors | operating table | anesthesia cart | surgical instruments cart | storage space for common surgical supplies | containers for disposables | scrubbing area
