Important Medical Consumables for a Sterile Environment
Maintaining a sterile environment is critical for any healthcare facility. This, of course, has always been the case, but the on-going Covid-19 pandemic has really brought home the importance of infection control.
Whether a patient is attending a general clinic or having life-saving surgery, there are many opportunities for infection to strike. It is not only patients that need protecting; clinicians, too, are at risk from cross-contamination and infectious disease.
With this in mind, infection control is one of the most important considerations for a healthcare manager. There are a range of capital products and medical consumables that you can utilise to ensure a sterile environment. Read on to discover how Paragon Care can help you protect your patients and healthcare workers alike.
Medical consumables play an important role in the fight against infection.
Regardless of the type of healthcare facility you manage, be it an aged care home or large specialist hospital, there are certain basic products that you will need to protect patients and workers. These are commonly referred to as ‘Personal Protective Equipment’. The Covid-19 pandemic means we are all well aware of what PPE is — gloves, gowns, face masks, and hair nets.
In addition, medical consumables can be used to ensure equipment is kept sterile. Ultrasound probe covers, for example, provide a physical barrier to prevent cross-contamination during an ultrasound examination. Procedural kits, which are specifically designed to be used across all healthcare specialties, make it easy for clinicians to access and dispose of sterile tools.
Paragon Care’s product portfolio includes a number of medical consumables that can help disinfect surfaces and equipment in a quick and effective manner.
As is the case with most areas of healthcare, capital equipment and consumable products work hand in hand to help clinicians provide quality medical care.
Innovations in medical technology have meant that there are a range of capital products that can be used to disinfect a room and reduce the risk of infection. These products often utilise UV-C (ultraviolet C) technology to disinfect surfaces, killing bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens. Such machines can operate independently, around-the-clock to provide constant protection and peace of mind.
Here at Paragon Care, we have a number of such products available for purchase. Contact our team today to find out more.
