The Risk of Infection
The Most Susceptible
Surgeons, nurses and healthcare workers in general are the most susceptible because they are interacting with the patients and carriers of the disease on a daily basis. Therefore, it is very crucial for them to wear appropriately decontaminated masks and gowns to reduce the risk of infection. Also, these health-workers can serve as carriers of the disease and contribute to cross-infection among different departments within the hospital. Therefore, it is very crucial and vital to wear new or properly decontaminated PPE.
• Hydrogen peroxide vapour and Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation have been reported as suitable choices for disinfection of items contaminated with SARS-CoV-22
• HPV and UV germicidal irradiation are very effective at eliminating pathogens from FFP3 masks without significantly influencing appearance, integrity and function of these masks1
How Inivos Can Help
Our PPE decontamination service can be delivered as both an on-call service for emergency situations, a specific area or a project or as a scheduled managed service contract. This enables us to reduce the risk of a patient acquiring and infection whilst in hospital, by reducing the number of reservoirs available for dangerous pathogens to multiply in.
