Anaheim, CA (PRWEB) February 18, 2014
Kerr TotalCare, a leading provider of infection control, recently re-released a white paper that outlines current dental surface disinfection protocols. Written by dental care experts Nancy Andrews and Noel Brandon-Kelsch, the 22-page white paper also highlights the efficacy provided by CaviCide1™ and CaviWipes1™, two surface disinfectant products.
According to a Kerr TotalCare representative:
“We are excited to re-release this white paper, a thorough investigation of surface disinfection, so that healthcare professionals can increase workplace safety and decrease the risk of pathogens for both patients and themselves.”
With the re-release of the whitepaper, Kerr TotalCare aims to increase awareness of proper medical hygiene procedures through reliable, detailed guidance for proper surface disinfection methods and products. Disinfection of contaminated surfaces and medical devices in all healthcare settings remains an ongoing challenge for infection prevention and patient safety. Kerr TotalCare’s white paper offers healthcare providers a comparative overview and evaluation of disinfecting products and practices to increase compliance in the workplace.
Andrews and Brandon-Kelsch emphasize that risks to workplace safety arise when workers are unclear on the limitations of a product, including which surfaces it is compatible with, potential toxicity on skin, required contact time for disinfection, and compatibility with other chemicals and materials. In the white paper the authors outline protocols for surface disinfectants that provide a safe, rapid effectiveness against TB and other infectious diseases, as well as products that are compatible with common dental office materials.
Disinfecting contaminated surfaces and objects in healthcare settings is a critical component for preventing infections among patients and workers according to Andrews and Brandon-Kelsch. To combat the growing list of infectious diseases, Kerr TotalCare’s white paper seeks to empower dental workers with proper cleaning methods and offers recommendations for appropriate infection prevention products. The comparative analysis also suggests that among the wide range of product options, CaviCide1™ and CaviWipes1™ offer dental professionals two rapid, reliable and effective surface disinfectants for the dental workplace.
