HPD, after deep cleaning with a detergent/chlorine agent, was highly effective for removing C. diff contamination.
Ultra-V™ was chosen to decontaminate the environment during a construction project within the Walsall Healthcare hospital.
Manual cleaning was performed and samples collected to measure total viability count (TVC). Afterwards, Ultra-V™ decontamination was carried out and new samples were taken.
A strong presence of TVC was still found after manual cleaning, whilst after Ultra-V™ decontamination the levels of TVC were 98% lower.
Multiresistant organisms (MRO) at were on the increase. An action plan was formed using improved manual cleaning and Hydrogen Peroxide Vapour.
Sutherland Hospital ICU improved PPE requirements and implemented Deprox™ into their decontamination programme.
After using Deprox™, the ICU experienced significantly lower MRO cases and reduced the occupied-bed number by over 90%.
A study to determine the efficacy of using hydrogen peroxide vapour for decontamination of hospital side rooms.
Large environmental sampling for C.difficile was performed before deep cleaning with chlorine agents and again after Deprox™ HPV.
Deprox™ cleaning reduced contamination levels by 95% from the levels observed after deep cleaning.
