MRSA infections occur mostly in hospitals and healthcare facilities. Here, they can survive anywhere.
MRSA is especially troublesome as a hospital-associated infection-HAI (nosocomial) in patients with open wounds, invasive devices, and weakened immune systems, which are at the highest risk for infections.
MRSA infections alone account for over 19,000 US deaths a year, which are more than those linked to AIDS.
Healthcare provider to patient transfer is common, especially when healthcare providers move from patient to patient without performing necessary hand-hygiene techniques between them. A recent report, centered on a survey by the “Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology”(APIC), concluded that poor healthcare professional hand-hygiene habits, remains the principal cause in the spread of MRSA
Healthcare Anti-Microbial Cleanser
Medi-Foame™ Anti-Microbial Cleanser** is an alcohol based cleanser formulated to protect our healthcare professionals. The chosen ingredients used create an optimal formula for maximum protection in the harshest environments.
The U.S. Center For Disease Control (CDC) recommends the use of alcohol-based hand cleansers for optimum protection from transmissible healthcare associated infections
such as MRSA, VRE, Staphylococcus Aureus,
Bacterial Meningitis, Swine Flu, and other
Here at Purasôl Laboratories we have made a commitment to tackle this horrible problem at its very core and "fix the failure" point. Interview after interview, we received feedback from healthcare providers telling us that their largest obstacle in following proper hand hygiene procedures was a "time restraints" issue. This helped us conclude that the root of the problem was not within the formulations that are available, BUT, within the products accessibility and convenience. After countless laborious hours of research and engineering we have hurdled this obstacle. We have created an Anti-Microbial Foam cleanser, and an Ambulatory Dispersion System that will transform the dismal 35-45% hand hygiene compliance rate into a exemplary 90-100% compliance rate level
