Anaheim, CA (PRWEB) January 13, 2014
Metrex™, a leader in Infection Prevention, has announced the release of Infection Prevention’s Circle of Care: The 7 Critical Touch Points of the healthcare facility. The 7 Critical Touch Points are the most critical areas in the healthcare environment in preventing healthcare-associated infections (HAIs).
HAIs can spread in any area of the Circle of Care. Metrex is the only company that offers a system of solutions designed to address cross-contamination across the entire healthcare facility.
HAIs typically affect seven different elements in patient care settings. The 7 Critical Touch Points are:
- Patient Rooms
- Operating Rooms
- Waiting Rooms
- Mobile Equipment
- Sterile Processing Departments
By taking a wide-ranging approach in the battle against HAIs, Infection Prevention’s Circle of Care is truly a 360-degree solution. The Circle of Care considers the healthcare patient and also covers the complete facility. For example, the Circle of Care includes high-quality hand sanitizers for non-critical zones such as hallways and waiting rooms.
Metrex products include surface disinfectants, instrument reprocessing essentials, high-level disinfectants, liquid medical waste disposal products, hand hygiene products, air deodorizers and face protection accessories.
Metrex was founded in 1985 and is a subsidiary of Danaher. The company’s vision of “Protecting People” is behind every product, including detergents, disinfectants, waste disposal accessories and more for medical clinics, hospitals, laboratories and other healthcare facilities.
