Nosocomial outbreaks can occur rapidly causing major disruption and increased costs to the hospital. Environmental contamination is linked to the transmission of healthcare associated infection (HAI) caused by pathogens including Gram-negatives, Clostridium difficile, MRSA and Norovirus.
Bioquell's Emergency Outbreak service can be deployed rapidly to proven operational protocols covering a wide remit from risk analysis through to the minimization of room downtime. Our proven hydrogen peroxide vapor (HPV) technology has been shown to eradicate HAI causing nosocomial pathogens and can be safely used in areas with highly sensitive hospital equipment and electronics to bio-decontaminate all exposed surfaces.
Outbreaks are usually highly stressful and can be associated with severe morbidity or mortality. Hospitals need fast, professional and effective action while being able to rely on total discretion.
The Bioquell Emergency Outbreak team is experienced in operating discreetly under these stressful conditions. The team works directly with infection control teams and senior clinicians to develop a response plan that maximizes the impact of Bioquell HPV technology against the outbreak. We can also advise on related issues, including how best to treat unopened, unused consumable supplies which may have been exposed to the target nosocomial pathogens.
