Medical Cap for Hospital Beds, Gurneys and Mattresses
PROTECT • PREVENT • PRESERVE
Path-O-Cap™ is a patent pending unique, disposable single use “CAP” developed in response to the need to reduce hospital acquired infections and the spread of potentially harmful pathogens and bacteria
Contamination of high-touch surfaces such as mattresses, beds and bed rails can be reservoirs of pathogens, and they can play a role in the transmission of potentially harmful pathogens to patients and staff in the healthcare setting. ECRI has recognized the risk of cross-contamination through mattresses as their #2 technology hazard for 2019. Their recommendation is that healthcare facilities use appropriate products and procedures to ensure clean and disinfected mattress covers. Path-O-Cap™ assists healthcare workers to demonstrate proof of environmental cleaning compliance and to immediately identify clean or soiled beds, mattresses and gurneys.
All the items on the ECRI list represent problems that can be avoided or risks that can be minimized through the careful management of technologies. With the additional content provided in the full report, the list serves as a tool that healthcare facilities can use to efficiently and effectively manage the risks.
