A study published in Infection Control and Hospital Epidemiology found that a high percentage of hospital and ambulatory center curtains were contaminated with COVID-19, MRSA, VRE and C-Diff. With over 100,000 deaths in the United States alone, it is clear that sanitizing cubicle curtains to reduce the risk of infection is essential.
According to Dr. Betsy McCaughey, founder of the Committee to Reduce Infectious Deaths, infections kill more Americans each year than AIDS, car accidents, and breast cancer combined.
Doctors and nurses may clean hands or wear protective gloves coming into a patient’s room, but they are recontaminated when opening and/or closing a privacy curtain. Cleaning curtains frequently helps reduce contamination. No one makes it easier to change curtains than ICS.
