QuickMedical® Announces Launch Of Hard Surface Cleaner By Surgical Scientific Products

December 8, 2011

According to QuickMedical®, Hard Surface Cleaner manufactured by Surgical Scientific Products was developed to provide better patient outcomes by using a non-aggressive formula that can be used on LCD monitors, lighting diffusers and booms, laptop key boards, operating tables, cabinetry and even floors and walls.

Hard Surface Cleaner by Surgical Scientific is, according to QuickMedical, designed for cleaning hard surfaces in the operating room and other medical facilities.

Certain surfaces, especially ones touched frequently (e.g., light handles, unit switches, and drawer knobs) can serve as reservoirs of microbial contamination. Although hand hygiene is key to minimizing this transferal, barrier protection or cleaning and disinfecting of environmental surfaces also protects against health-care–associated infections.

Loren Timmons, Marketing Director at QuickMedical said, âœThe CDC has identified a number of protocols for infection control starting with clean surfaces. The new Hard Surface Cleaner from Surgical Scientific removes residual chemicals left on surfaces without the harmful effects of alcohol, bleach or ammonia which can shorten the life of expensive equipment.â

When the OSHA Blood borne Pathogens Standard was first enacted in 1991, several studies were conducted to substantiate the cost of infection control or prevention procedures for dentistry. The average cost was estimated to be about $15 per patient visit. This number included the cost of disposable items and barriers, personal protective equipment such as gloves and masks, replacement and repair of hand pieces due to required sterilization, the cost of sterilization equipment, and the use of disinfectants.

David Little, National Sales Manager for Surgical Scientific said, âœBe aware of manufacturer’s recommendations for or against using surface disinfectants on some equipment, and follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for cleaning. A dental facility for example should establish a schedule for cleaning and maintenance on all equipment.â Mr. Mussel went on to say, âœDental equipment, such as patient chairs, will last longer if the manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning and disinfection are followed; high-alcohol and other kinds of disinfectants may cause the upholstery to dry and crack. Be sure to follow the product instructions for use because good maintenance prevents costly repair bills.â
