When was the last time you walked into a hospital room and thought “Those curtains look safe to me!”? This may seem like a trivial thought, but in reality, it’s something that every hospital administrator should be thinking more often. In a recent study, the Center for Disease Control identified some of the most frequently touched areas of a patient’s room. The bedside table, remote control, and bedrails scored highly and all received daily cleanings. Can you guess the area that rarely gets cleaned and is high on the touch list? You guessed it. Curtains.
To make matters worse, depending on the fabric the curtains are created with, certain bacteria may be resistant to washing. With the rise of healthcare associated infections, healthcare facilities are scrambling to find alternatives to traditional curtains to help lower infections. One of the more prominent alternatives in recent years has come from the rise of more dependable disposable cubicle curtains.
Environmental Healthcare Switch To Disposable Cubicle Curtains
Four percent of healthcare patients contract some type of healthcare associated infection during their stay. Considering the millions of patients that visit the hospital a year, that comes to a pretty staggering number. More frequent cleanings could be helpful, but addressing the curtain issue is a surefire way to lower the number of infections.
To help combat the rise of infections, disposable cubicle curtains are starting to show up more in environmental healthcare settings. A few of the reasons these are proving superior to traditional curtains are:
- Standardization. All curtains your staff replace will be the same size, same color, and require minimal training to remove and install.
- AEGIS Antimicrobial technology comes standard on every curtain. This means a lower infection risk for your patients.
- Cost-effective. Remove the cost of traditional curtains and the cleaning costs associated with them and you’ll be amazed how much cheaper disposable curtains are.
