WSP COMMITTED TO STRIVING FOR ZERO INFECTION
Weststate Private Hospital will showcase some of the best technological advances in service and utilities to underpin their goals to deliver on the e3 experience. One of the key deliverables will be to minimise all risks of infection – in particular, surgical site infection. Not only is this a catastrophic experience for the patient but also knock on effects are enormous, both clinically and economically. Over the coming weeks, the products and services best suited to this goal will be highlighted here.
This months focus is on Infection Prevention in the OR. There is a lot of industry interest in this space. Through the expert guidance from Wilhelm Integrated Solutions WSP have acquired technologies that are clinically proven to assist in infection prevention.
Introducing Indigo Clean:
Current environmental disinfection methods are applied at discrete moments in time (ie.episodically). The results of achieving a “clean room” are short-lived as harmful bacteria re-populate the space
White disinfection mode
Indigo-Clean offers a solution that continuously disinfects the environment and bolsters your current infection prevention efforts.
