Healthcare Associated Infections (HAI) continue to plaque mankind around the world

Healthcare Associated Infections (HAI) continue to plaque mankind around the world, from the third world to developed countries alike. HAI prevalence is one of the clinical quality measures tracked by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to improve care quality and patient outcomes. In 2016, more than 3,000 patient deaths resulted from HAIs, resulting in $2 billion of excess medical spending. In addition to increased care costs, HAIs link to longer patient stay lengths and higher mortality risks.

Infection rates are staggering and continue to grow within clinics, hospitals, long-term care facilities and pediatric care. Infection Control Systems’ highly concentrated Instant HOClTM has been proven to kill even the most difficult and common healthcare facility pathogens, such as MRSA, C. diff, C. auris, RSV, Norovirus and numerous others.

Infection rates within Long term care facilities continue to be a growing challenge

Long Term Care Facilities

Infection rates within Long term care facilities (LTCF) continue to be a growing challenge. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), estimates that:

Clostridium difficile infection can cause life-threatening diarrhea and is one of the most common healthcare-associated infections in the United States

Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria

Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) can cause life-threatening diarrhea and is one of the most common healthcare-associated infections in the United States. These spore forming bugs are extremely difficult to kill. There were more than 223,000 estimated cases in hospitalized patients in 2017 resulting in more than 12,000 deaths at an estimated attributed healthcare cost of $1 billion.

Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), is another potentially dangerous type of staph bacteria that is resistant to certain antibiotics and may cause skin and other infections. According to the CDC, approximately 5% of patients in U.S. hospitals carry MRSA in their nose or on their skin.

Infection rates of our young within pediatric units, clinics and schools are on the rise.

Pediatric Facilities

Infection rates of our young within pediatric units, clinics and schools are on the rise. Covid sub-variants continue to plague the world’s population and other pathogens such as Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) are overloading pediatric hospitals nationwide. The demand for proactive disinfecting products to combat infection continues to grow at unprecedented rates.

ICS recommends additional use of effective disinfectants such as Instant HOClTM, as a proactive measure to combat the problem.
