Contamination of dental unit waterlines has been extensively documented for over 30 years. The narrow flexible tubes are an ideal environment for proliferation of bacterial colonies which can become a serious threat to patients and dental staff alike.
The stable HOCl produced by The Safe Disinfectant Company completely destroys these biofilms, including but not limited to Legionella pneumophila, HIV, dental plaque.
Along with the sanitation benefits, our disinfectant is non corrosive and will not cause damage to dental equipment or other surfaces.
There are unique challenges present in the control of pathogens in nursing homes. The emergence of antibiotic resistant organisms along with prolonged use of medical devices pose a great threat to the vulnerable elderly patient population. Cross contamination between patients is common partly because facilities typically do not have the ability to isolate infections due to space limitations.
Some commonly found nursing home invaders that Safe Disinfectant eradicates are not limited to the following:
Clostridium difficile, Norovirus, Demodex Mites, Escherichia coli, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Staphylococcus aureus
Hospices, day care, rehabilitation centers, and private homes are joining the ranks of hospitals, clinics, and nursing homes as "health care facilities." More than one half of health care workers are employed outside of hospitals which exposes them to environments that may be less "contamination controlled".
