Encompass Group LLC Partners with PerfectCLEAN for infection prevention

With the incentives for preventing healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) continuing to escalate, leading hospitals are looking to environmental hygiene solutions from brands like PerfectCLEAN offered by Encompass Group LLC.

The PerfectCLEAN Environmental Hygiene System has been designed to exceed the CDC recommendations for blood borne pathogens and has been developed to be laundered in a commercial laundry with the CDC recommended levels of hypochlorite bleach.

The products represent the only true color-coded system supported by a number of training programs including Operating Room processing – practices and procedures which recently received the AORN Seal of Recognition. In this day and age it makes absolutely no sense whatsoever not to isolate the bathroom, the key reservoir for C diff, from the patient care zone. PerfectCLEAN offers excellent ROI through superior durability.

The PerfectCLEAN System includes a wide range of products designed and developed to meet every challenge. Unique micro-denier fiber is used in all PerfectCLEAN products. All are designed to work hand-in-hand with any cleaning solution.

Maintaining a safe and clean patient environment is an essential part of caring for hospitalized patients. Each year, more than 2 million patients are affected by HAIs, resulting in more than 100,000 deaths. The cost to treat HAIs is growing. A report published last year estimates that HAIs arising in U.S. acute care hospitals cost society as much as $147 billion annually.
