Detroit, MI -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/03/2015 -- The risk of healthcare-associated infections continues to be a challenge and a major focus for hospitals and medical facilities across the US. Recently, studies have shown that one of the places where potentially dangerous viruses and bacteria are likely to quickly and frequently accumulate is on the privacy curtains of hospitals, putting the patients at risk. The ImageFIRST Detroit location has announced it is now offering a new Cubical Curtain Program to help hospitals prevent the spread of potentially dangerous bacteria, a program also available through many other of the company's other locations nationwide.
