Helping to Protect Patients
Medical tubing such as catheters, feeding tubes and ventilation devices are life-saving but they’re also notorious for infection. These tubes often harbor dangerous organisms, including superbugs like CRE and MRSA. Microorganisms that reside on healthcare workers or a patient’s skin can easily colonize these devices and cause infection.
In order to combat this growing threat of antibiotic-resistant infections (and the steep financial penalties for high infection rates) healthcare facilities are investing in medical tubing that leverages antimicrobial technologies with proven high-reduction rates for the most concerning strains of bacteria. That’s where Sciessent comes in.
