Neenah, WI (PRWEB) March 02, 2017
TIDI Products, LLC, a leading manufacturer of clinically differentiated, single-use, infection-prevention products, today announced the immediate availability of the TIDIShield® Transport™ back-table contamination cover, developed specifically to aide in surgical-environment, contaminated-instrument handling.
TIDI Products’ offerings are uniquely designed to help defend and protect the sterile field, along with helping to reduce and prevent infection risk to staff and patients. The TIDIShield Transport back-table contamination cover offers an affordable solution for transporting contaminated reusable instruments from the operating room to a decontamination site, aiding both in identifying biohazardous materials and covering contaminated instruments during transportation from surgery to a decontamination site.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) specifies that reusable sharp instruments, including those potentially exposed to infectious materials and/or microbial aerosols, be protected in puncture-resistant, leak-proof, color-coded and/or properly labeled containment solutions. The Association of Surgical Technologies (AST) recommends that, during transport, contaminated instruments be contained in a manner that prevents staff contact with infectious materials, including with the use of impermeable bags. TIDIShield Transport was designed to comply with OSHA and AST guidelines.
“TIDI Products cultivates solutions that make risky environments safer,” said TIDI Products President and Chief Executive Officer Kevin McNamara. “We designed the single-use TIDIShield Transport back-table contamination cover particularly to assist in identifying and covering surgical instruments during transportation from surgical site to decontamination.”
In addition to the current TIDIShield Transport standard size that fits surgical back tables up to 4’6” in length, the extra-large size TIDIShield Transport fits surgical back tables from 4’6” up to 8’0” in length. These products are designed to effectively cover surgical instruments during transportation to a decontamination site. Customers may order TIDIShield Transport directly from TIDI Products or from TIDI Products approved distributors and purchasing groups.
