Beating the superbugs
Since the Monroe Hospital opened in Bloomington Indiana, there has not been a single case of a hospital-acquired infection from superbugs.
A new era of hospital hygiene
Knowing the burden reacting to superbugs places on the hospitals, James Ballard, MBA, decided to develop an infection prevention strategy to tackle the issue. He searched the globe for the best technology and discovered Byotrol. Byotrol is used everywhere in the hospital from hand hygiene to high contact surfaces to even the building’s stonework to deliver the ultimate germ protection programme.
Byotrol can be used to control germs everywhere
Byotrol works so well in hospital environments because it does everything needed from an antimicrobial technology. It can be used everywhere. It kills and destroys bugs and nasties on contact and then dries to a microscopic barrier which keeps killing and destroying for up to 24 hours on surfaces and 8 hours on skin. It’s also gentler than alcohol and bleach so can be used around patients without concerns about causing further harm.
One man’s belief
Ballard‘s pre-use trial showed that surfaces treated with Byotrol showed no growth of the hospital superbugs MRSA or VRE three days after being treated and that Byotrol was therefore killing organisms several days after application as opposed to conventional disinfectants such as bleach which are only effective for a few minutes after application at best.
Following the study, Ballard and his team started to roll out the Byotrol technology. Initially it was used on a weekly basis for cleaning and following this first stage deployment, it is now used daily throughout the hospital.
