PathoSans Nursing Home Cleaning Products, PathoClean and PathoCide
Long-term care facilities present many unique challenges for a housekeeping staff. These facilities include senior living, assisted living, and nursing homes. They not only serve as places for healthcare but also as homes to elderly and disabled residents. These residents are more susceptible to infection, more vulnerable to harsh chemicals, and more at risk for slip-and-fall accidents than the general population. Choosing the right long-term care cleaning products is essential to keeping these facilities free of disease-causing pathogens, but they must do much more. Cleaning products should minimize inhalation and skin irritant risks, reduce risk of slip and fall accidents, and provide residents with the clean and comfortable environment they deserve.
Long-term Care Associated Infections
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 1 to 3 million serious infections occur in long-term care facilities each year. And up to 380,000 deaths can be linked to these infections each year. PathoSans electrochemically-activated (ECA) solutions kill 99.999% of microbes within 10 seconds (see time kill studies for more on dwell time), stopping disease-causing pathogens in their tracks. They have been proven non-irritating to the skin and eyes, so they are better than conventional chemical cleaners for residents of long-term care facilities. PathoSans ECA solutions also leave no chemical residue behind and reduce the risk of slips and falls on a slippery residue buildup.
“PathoSans has simplified our cleaning process, while providing excellent results in our facility. In addition, by replacing traditional cleaning chemicals we have eliminated potential respiratory issues with residents, since there are no inhalation or skin contact risks with the PathoSans solutions.”
