Minimizing the Transmission of Infection Disease in Heath Care Environments by Use of Disinfectable PC Keyboards and Mice
Landover, MD (PRWEB) October 17, 2008
Man & Machine, Inc., http://www.man-machine.com, a leading manufacture of cleanable keyboards and mice, has released a White Paper titled, "Minimizing the Transmission of Infection Disease in Heath Care Environments by Use of Disinfectable PC Keyboards and Mice". Clifton Broumand, author of the White Paper, says, "We wrote the White Paper to coincide with the October 1 Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services new policy of no longer reimbursing hospitals for the treatment of major Hospital-acquired Infections. The financial burden on hospitals due to this policy shift may be staggering." Man & Machine's keyboards and mice are designed to meet medical standards for clinical and non-clinical environments. The White Paper is available free online at http://www.man-machine.com/whitepaper or may be requested at email@example.com
The White Paper addresses an area often overlooked in a comprehensive review of hidden bacteria in hospital clinical environments, the ubiquitous keyboards and mice. These devices have been linked throughout high risk areas of hospitals to the spread of infectious diseases including patient rooms, nursing stations, operating rooms and in the ICU. The White Paper explores the need for cleanable keyboards and mice and what to look for when purchasing computer peripherals.
Clifton Broumand, who founded Man & Machine 26 years ago said, "Man & Machine is pleased with positive actions now being taken to reduce Hospital-acquired Infections including the coming together last week of top epidemiological societies and the American Hospital Association and the Joint Commission to create guidelines to prevent six types of infections. Hopefully a trend has now begun which will significantly reduce Hospital-acquired infections saving lives and money," he concludes.
