Benefits of Antibacterial Wipes in Healthcare.

1st November 2018

Medipal® Disinfectant Wipes are intended for cleaning and disinfecting surfaces of non-invasive medical devices and equipment in healthcare and care environments. Medipal® Disinfectant Wipes contain a dual biocidal solution which is highly effective against a wide range of microorganisms.

 

Hospitals and care facilities are moving away from traditional methods of environmental cleaning. Pre-soaked, ready-to-use and disposable wipes are increasingly used for the disinfection of near-patient surfaces to prevent the spread of microorganisms and the emergence of nosocomial infections. Typical issues that arise from using traditional methods (multiple-use towels, wrong dosage or repeated dipping) can be avoided by using disposable wipes.

 

Ready-to-use cleaning and disinfection wipes have been shown to lead to significant higher compliance, a more rapid cleaning and disinfection process and potential cost savings.

 

Using Wipes:
• Ready-to-use wipes can be incorporated into a healthcare facilities’ overall environmental hygiene program
• The following is not intended to be an all-inclusive cleaning procedure but certainly any of the steps outlined below can be integrated into an existing daily cleaning protocol.

 

Patient Bed Area
• Use a new wipe on the top and front of the bed’s headboard, side rails and in between the rails. Also wipe the TV remote control and the nurse call device and cord.
• Use a new wipe on the bead frame and on the coated mattress and coated pillows. Allow items to air dry.
• Use a new wipe on the footboard and depending on the footboard type, make sure to wipe between the spaces and grooves.

 

High-Touch Areas
• Use wipes on all high-touch areas in patient rooms i.e. desktops, keyboards, bedside tabletop / locker and inner drawer, phone and cradle, armchairs, door and cabinet handles, light switches and wardrobe handles etc.…
• Use a new wipe on mobile devices such as IC stands, carts, monitors etc.…
• Use a new wipe on any air vents in the room.
