Albany, Ore. (Vocus) June 10, 2010
Tec Laboratories, Inc., makers of StaphAseptic® first aid antiseptic and pain relieving gel, today announced national distribution and placement of a commercial video for StaphAseptic scheduled to air during Summer 2010 on major television networks including WE, SOAP, Style, TLC, Food Network, and Lifetime.
The commercial can also be viewed at the StaphAseptic Facebook fan page and on YouTube and kicks off a MRSA awareness building effort leading up to World MRSA Awareness Month in October. StaphAseptic is a lead sponsor for the second year of World MRSA Awareness Day slated for October 2, 2010.
“As we continue our direct efforts to educate the public about MRSA detection and prevention, we are alarmed to hear that simple cuts, scrapes and burns are resulting in more and more cases of this potentially deadly infection,” said Steve Smith, CEO of Tec Laboratories. “Bacterial infections aren’t seasonal and each life they take is one too many, so we are committed to keeping a constant spotlight on caring for wounds before they can result in MRSA or any other infection that becomes a major health crisis.”
Following the recent news that community-acquired MRSA cases among children in the U.S. has increased ten fold in the last decade, the company is reinforcing the importance of wound care among the key steps to avoid MRSA and other bacterial infections.
The common steps for prevention of MRSA, staph, strep and other bacterial infections include:
- Treat and cover wounds
- Exclusively using personal items like towels, soap and razors and not sharing
- Shower after physical activity
- Properly clean personal items including gear and equipment after athletic or other extra-curricular activity
- Keep hands clean
- Consult a physician for active wounds that are red, swollen, painful or have pus or other drainage
