NanoLand Global surface treatments help reduce MRSA, H1N1 and Nova virus transmission in wards and operating theaters, as well as improving hospital kitchen hygiene.

Following the successful trials in a leading UK hospital, NanoLand Global are at Europe’s leading healthcare innovation expo promoting their range of easy-clean and anti-bacterial surface treatments that help reduce MRSA, H1N1 and Nova virus transmission.
Hospital i nfection control managers and, following the Sunday Times report last weekend into how 75% of UK hospital catering facilities failed recent environmental health inspections, healthcare catering managers, will all be interested to discover how effective these new treatments are.
“Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool recently used these kinds of treatments on the toys in the playroom area” explains Dermott Reilly of NanoLand Global, “as they realised these were a major potential threat of cross-infection. By making the toys anti-bacterial and easy to clean, contamination can be dramatically reduced”.
Their current trials in another hospital’s catering area have shown remarkable drops in bacterial infection on a wide range of touch-point surfaces.
Perhaps most tellingly, the one place where there has been the least impact has been the hand pump soap dispenser. “It is probably because so few people touch it and use it” says Dermott, “and it explains why bacterial rates were so high everywhere else.”
Despite employee education, human nature is that people are slack about personal hygiene regimes in these environments, so using the NanoLand Global anti-bacterial and easy clean surface treatments counteracts that impact.
NanoLand Global offer an application service as well as selling the products. They even have a paint in their range, available in a wide variety of colours, that help reduce dust adhesion to walls and contribute to an overall healthier environment.
