If you missed our Breakfast Symposium: Copper Never Sleeps: Creating a Hostile Environment for Pathogens on Thursday morning, we have good news!
An increasing number of published trials demonstrate the role of copper as an effective infection prevention measure. With continuously self-sanitizing properties, surfaces embedded with copper are additive to episodic environmental cleaning products and technologies.
In this session we will examine the impact on HAI of embedding copper into the most frequently touched and contaminated (C. diff and MRSA) surfaces in the room. In 2017, Sentara Healthcare expanded the deployment of copper patient gowns and bed linens to an additional six hospitals. Join us as Jacque Butler shares data showing statistically significant reductions in HAI.
