Hospitals & Healthcare Facilities
AAccording to the CDC, as many as 2 million hospital-acquired (“nosocomial”) infections from pathogens (bacteria and viruses) cause or contribute to almost 100,000 deaths each year in the U.S. alone. Most importantly, a large majority of these infections fall into the “preventable” category.
People in hospitals and healthcare facilities — such as assisted living, care facilities and VA hospitals — typically have impaired defenses against bacteria, making their systems far more susceptible.
Fighting Evolved Pathogens with Outdated, Ineffective Methods
Today’s sanitizing protocols call for alcohol wiping solutions, hand alcohol rubs and hand washing. Although common, these sanitizing methods often miss viruses and bacteria on surfaces, in fluids and in corners, crevices and other hard-to-reach places where pathogens often hide and breed.
Approximately 1 out of every 20 hospital patients will acquire an infection during their stay that is not related to the reason they checked in.
Level4 Bio safely and effectively kills surface and airborne pathogens in hospital and healthcare environments, reaching areas that wiping and washing methods often miss. In fact, Level4 Bio is proven to reduce sanitizing time and therefore room down-time by as much as 80%, helping healthcare facilities turn rooms faster by speeding sanitizing while doing a much more thorough and complete job than traditional methods. Turning rooms faster and doing a more thorough sanitizing job not only results in healthier staff and patients, it results in a healthier bottom line.
