Privacy Curtains Can Help Spread Germs in Medical Facilities
July 11, 2016
Germs have become a public health threat, and they can cause and transmit thousands of infections. These microorganisms are a silent menace that spread undetected to the most unexpected places and healthcare institutions, such as hospitals, which are not exempt from this scourge. Microbes can hide anywhere in medical facilities, like waiting room chairs, beds, and even privacy curtains can carry these unwanted guests. Even though hospitals have strict protocols to decrease the risk of infections, sometimes they are not enough. However, ozone improves these protocols and it can guarantee an excellent Medical Facility Sanitizing
People think that hospitals are germ-free environments, nevertheless, they are highly exposed to infections, which raise the risk of disease transmission. Privacy curtains are very vulnerable to bacteria since many people touch them. A simple touch holds many bacteria, which are easily transmitted from one hand to another. The American Journal for Infection Control, reported that 92% of privacy curtains found in hospitals are contaminated with MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) and VRE (Vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus). As some of these bacteria have grown to be resistant to antibiotics, the threat is bigger.
When a person touches a privacy curtain with his bare hands, he automatically becomes a transmitting agent of the worst microorganisms on that curtain. So, even though the person who was directly in contact with the germs never manifests any symptom, he or she is still passing on the infection to a weaker immune system. Therefore, breaking the transmission chain is very important to preserve health in society and prevent epidemics.
It is necessary to stop this menace by using an effective yet safe alternative. Currently, humans cannot afford to apply highly polluting products that could damage the environment. Then, the best option to completely sanitize any area is ozone, which is a natural gas that results from oxygen molecules subjected to ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun or an electric charge from lightning.
Considering that ozone is a gas, its range is unmeasurable. It can permeate either hard or soft surfaces. It destroys the cell wall of the aggrieving microbes, killing bacteria and leaving nothing but inoffensive waste. Ozone is a strong sanitizer that works on any surface and material.
