Palmero’s Latest Infection Prevention and Safety Products

DisCide® Ultra Surface Disinfectant

With its recently expanded list of kill claims, DisCide Ultra is proven to kill 27 deadly pathogens including tuberculous in 1 minute or less accelerating your operatory turnover. EPA registered, DisCide Ultra is ready to use (no mixing or measuring is required). It is available in towelettes, spray, and bulk gallon refills.

Dynamic Disposables New Snapeez Face Shields

The next generation of disposable face shields is here! Known for our safety and infection prevention compliance products, we understand the importance of face shields when additional protection is needed to safeguard the entire face from infectious agents. Our new Dynamic Disposables Snapeez is an addition to our traditional face field line with an easy-to-use snap-on disposable lens feature. It is lightweight, disposable, and cost effective. The self-sealing face shields prevent splatter exposureand meet OSHA bloodborne pathogens PPE guidelines. Our Dynamic Disposables are extremely easy to use and remove and fit comfortably over prescription glasses or goggles. Unlike some systems that use an “eyeglass style” frame to support the shield, our lightweight frame does not require a nose bridge delivering a more comfortable, more-secure fit. The full and half shields both offer our Ultra-Clear™ Technology to prevent fogging, glare, and static electric buildup. The crystal-clear plastic allows for excellent front and peripheral vision with protection you can trust. Because they are disposable, your shield is guaranteed to be scratch free for optimal visibility.

 

Palmero X-Ray Apron Recycle/Trade-In Program

We are committed to environmental responsibility. It’s a key component of our core values and an extension of our mission to protect patients, clinicians, and the practice to include the environment as well. Our new eco-friendly and environmentally responsible program rewards participants for supporting greener initiative! We know that lead aprons have a useful life as their shielding properties wear down gradually. Proper maintenance includes either checking via fluoroscopy or replacing if they show any signs of damage. According to the EPA, recycling lead aprons is the preferred method since it keeps lead out of landfills. Now you can go green with our environmentally friendly X-Ray Apron Recycle/Trade-in Program. All materials will be responsibly disposed of and all lead liners will be properly distributed for processing back to base material. If you are only looking for a method of responsible disposal we are happy to accommodate, however we hope you will take part in our Trade-In Program and benefit from a complementary apron hanger that will help protect your investment in safety through proper storage.

 

From eyesight safety to radiation mitigation wear, the Palmero Healthcare portfolio of products delivers infection prevention and safety products for clinicians, patients and your practice.
