Miami, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/31/2015 -- In late June, ImageFIRST developed and launched a Webinar on Infection Control Today's website which is running through September. The Webinar, "Infection Prevention: Managing the Staff and Partners for Better Compliance," gives listeners a glimpse into the status of healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) within the United States, highlights a variety of topics and issues related to HAIs, describes how to engage the staff to better participate in basic prevention, as well as highlight the company's new Cubicle Curtain Cleaning Program.
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 1 in 25 United States' hospital patients contacts one or more HAI. Additionally, in recent studies that checked for the presence of bacteria on commonly-touched surfaces, over 90% of the cubicle curtains tested were found to be contaminated with a variety of bacteria including MRSA. Lastly, researchers also discovered that most curtains were fully contaminated after just one week.
ImageFIRST held this Webinar to help both their clients and other healthcare professionals to better understand how vital it is to engage the medical staff and rely on vendor partners. After all, not only is the patient at risk, but so is the staff and hospital reputation. Other topics covered in the Webinar were best practices with healthcare laundry, and what companies like ImageFIRST can do to help with infection prevention. In fact, ImageFIRST's Cubicle Curtain Cleaning Program is ideal for healthcare institutions that are looking for a way to manage cubicle curtains cleanliness.
