Certified as a Grade 1 Medical Device
Health care associated infections HAI’s ( also known as Hospital Acquired Infections ) in Health care settings are the most frequent adverse event in health-care delivery worldwide. Hundreds of millions of patients are are affected by health care-associated infections worldwide each year, leading to significant mortality and financial losses for health systems. Of every 100 hospitalized patients at any given time, 7 in developed and 10 in developing countries will acquire at least one health care-associated infection.
How Are Cleantech Uv International Able To Help?
Cleantech offer an Infection Protection System ( IPS ) that has been certified as a medical device through the TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration) to disinfect mattresses within the Health Industry. The infection Protection System uses Germicidal Ultra Violet technology. When used correctly in the healthcare sector Cleantech’s Infection Protection System is designed to:
- Reduce the rate of secondary infections
- Reduce the length of hospital stays
- Increase patient turnover and the availability of beds without further capital expenses going into facility expansions
- Provide better protection for patients and staff
The infection Protection System has wider application uses including :
- Aged Care Facilities
- Nursing Homes
- Doctors surgeries
- Massage and treatment tables
Are Beds The Trojan Horse Of The Medical/Health Industry?
There is substantial information relating to secondary infections and the damage both physically ( for the patient ) and financially ( for the care organisation )
Hundreds of millions of patients are affected by health care-associated infections worldwide each year, leading to significant mortality and financial losses for health systems. Of every 100 hospitalized patients at any given time, 7 in developed and 10 in developing countries will acquire at least one health care-associated infection.
In high-income countries, approximately 30% of patients in intensive care units (ICU) are affected by at least one health care-associated infection. In low- and middle-income countries the frequency of HAI infection is at least 2-3 fold higher than in high-income countries. Newborns are at higher risk of acquiring health care-associated infection in developing countries, with infection rates three to 20 times higher than in high-income countries.
Rates of HAI vary from hospital to hospital and country to country.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimated 1.7 million hospital-associated infections, from all types of bacteria combined, cause or contribute to 99,000 deaths each year. Other estimates indicate 10%, or 2 million, patients a year become infected, with the annual cost ranging from $4.5 billion to $11 billion.
Estimates rates range from 6.7% to 7.4%. Common infection sites included infections of the skin and mucous membrane, other respiratory infections and bacterial infections HAI infections are estimated to make patients stay in the hospital four to five additional days.
Average infection rates are 6.7% infection rate which cause between 4,500 and 7,000 deaths per year.
The rate of HAIs in England was 6.4% in 2011, with respiratory tract, urinary tract and surgical site infections the most common types of HAI reported.
Estimates HAI rates range between 2% and 14%.
HAI Rate are estimated at 8.5% of patients
In Belgium the prevalence of HAI is estimated to be 6.2%. Annually about 125 500 patients become infected resulting in almost 3000 deaths. The extra costs for the health insurance are estimated to be approximately €400 million/year.
