Infection Prevention Innovation From Diversey
Diversey understands the critical needs and challenges faced by healthcare providers, with the aim of reducing risks, improving patient outcomes and minimising environmental impact.
Its integrated infection control bundle comprises a unique combination of intelligent hand and surface disinfection solutions, UVC technologies, robotic floorcare machines, tools and equipment, and expertise in chemicals. This total-solutions offer is enhanced with initial and on-going training and a range of technology-based value-added services. Recent innovations include:
Moonbeam3 delivers powerful UV-C light to provide fast broad area disinfection of high-touch surfaces in as little as three minutes. This is much faster than fogging and almost twice as effective as traditional cleaning and disinfection alone in destroying the pathogens that cause healthcare associated infections (HAIs).
UV-C penetrates and destroys the DNA in the cells of viruses, bacteria and spores which stops them multiplying and causing infections. In this way Moonbeam3 offers facilities a completely hands, chemical and fume-free way to complement existing processes with safer high-performance disinfection. The device is ideal for adjunct cleaning surfaces accidentally missed during regular disinfection processes and for frequently touched, hard-to-clean surfaces and intricate equipment. This includes patient rooms, bathrooms, treatment rooms, and on patient care equipment, keyboards, monitors, and workstations.
Products in Diversey’s Oxivir range contain patented Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide (AHP) as the active ingredient. They deliver fast-acting, broad-spectrum surface disinfection against a wide range of pathogens including bacteria, viruses, yeasts and spores. AHP is a combination of commonly used, safe ingredients and low levels of hydrogen peroxide which dramatically increases potency and cleaning performance.
Oxivir Excel is a one-step cleaner-disinfectant which can replace general surface cleaning products for daily tasks to provide affordable ongoing infection protection. It has powerful surfactants which make it an excellent cleaner as well as assisting with limescale limitation in hard water areas. It is fully bactericidal against multi-drug resistant organisms (MDROs) including MRSA, VRE and CRE. It is also fully viricidal against non-enveloped and enveloped viruses such as Norovirus, Influenza and HIV in 30 seconds. It is yeasticidal against Candida albicans. Non-classified, it is safe to use around patients and will not damage surfaces.
Oxivir Sporicide is a ready-to-use one step hospital-grade, cleaner-disinfectant with excellent response against hard-to-kill pathogens such as C. diff, Bacillus subtilis and other MDROs in 60 seconds. Despite this efficacy its “irritant” classification is much lower than traditional alternatives.
Diversey complements its surface disinfection capabilities with a complete range of products to help maximise hand hygiene availability and convenience, including the new IntelliCare system. The dispenser can be used with a wide range of hand care products – soaps, sanitisers and creams – so that operators can choose the one most suited to their specific requirement. Each product is supplied in the same design and size of pouch to enable interchangeability and flexibility. The pouches are larger than average which, combined with the dispenser’s excellent dosing control, ensures the maximum interval between refills.
