ISSUE

Hospital-Acquired Infections

Hospital-acquired infections (also called healthcare-associated infections, or HAIs) are the infections that a patient can contract while being treated in a healthcare facility. HAIs present a significant threat to patient safety in hospitals and cause approximately 100,000 deaths (14% of all hospital deaths) annually in the U.S.

On any given day, about 1 in 25 American hospital patients acquires at least one healthcare-associated infection. [¹][²]

IMPACT

The Cost Of Hospital-Acquired Infections

The cost of treating HAIs is staggering — estimated at over $30 billion each year. Hospital cost is reported at over $15,000 per affected patient. Beyond the financial cost, the terrible impact on patients and communities cannot be measured. Infections complicate treatment, prolong hospital stays, cause higher re-admission rates, result in additional surgery, and cause pain, suffering and death.

Infection Control Efforts in Hospitals Ignore Certain Risk Areas

The prevention of hospital-acquired infection often focuses only on the high-risk, invasive diagnostic and therapeutic tools. However, the risk from non-critical tools is frequently underestimated and therefore neglected.

Examples of these non-invasive portable clinical items (NPIs) include blood pressure cuffs, stethoscopes, pulse oximeters, ophthalmoscopes, otoscopes, ultrasound transducers, id badges, pens, and more. Additionally, dozens of electronic devices carry pathogens, such as cell phones, pagers, game systems, and TV remote controls.

OUR SOLUTION

GloTran™ Can Help Prevent Hospital Acquired Infections

Our unique cold plasma disinfection technology effectively destroys pathogens on surfaces that have been traditionally difficult to disinfect.

The GloTran™ plasma disinfection system is an advanced, fast-acting technology that uses cold plasma (hydrogen peroxide and gas plasma) to destroy microbes, disinfecting hard-to-reach surfaces that may have intricate designs and complex shapes. It provides consistent, uniform disinfection of non-critical medical devices, heat-sensitive items and some electronics.

GloTran™ was designed to reduce the prevalence of HAIs caused by non-invasive portable clinical items (NPIs) and non-critical equipment in outpatient clinics, hospitals, dental offices, long-term care facilities, and anywhere healthcare is being practiced and pathogens such as MRSA present a danger.

Thorough Treatment

Hydrogen peroxide gas and ionized hydrogen peroxide plasma is uniformly applied to all surfaces treated inside the system, including the hard-to-reach areas.

Low Temperature

Disinfection temperature is low, near ambient or room temperature, making GloTran™ suitable for disinfecting heat-sensitive items including most plastics and polymer materials.

Fast Automated Cycle

Typical cycle lasts 20 minutes or less. The system is fully automated and requires minimal operator training and involvement.

Efficient & Clean

The process requires extremely small volumes of hydrogen peroxide, providing for low operating cost per cycle. Waste products are inert gases, and become filtered, and exhausted through a waste gas tube
