EvaClean unveils PurExcellence for true infection prevention partnerships
EvaClean’s new PurExcellence infection prevention program has been developed specifically for healthcare and higher education institutions to prioritise safety and sustainability and to provide customised solutions, standardised processes and perennial training, with a view to delivering cost savings of around 30%.
The first step in the quest for PurExcellence entails a complete site assessment of current protocols, chemistries and applications based on a number of factors specific to each facility.
Kurt Wong, chief experience officer at EarthSafe, EvaClean's parent company says: "The data is used to develop a comprehensive chemical analysis, then compared against a more standardised approach using safer chemistries, which invariably yields cost savings of at least 30%."
However, these benefits can't be realised without ongoing targeted education that ensures proper procedures are implemented on a consistent basis, as Rich Prinz, senior vice president of sales, explains:
"One of the most critical components of PurExcellence is customized training for the life of the partnership," he says. "Perennial education helps ensure higher levels of safety, compliance and productivity to achieve better outcomes."
Safety has always been one of EvaClean's primary pillars. That's why PurExcellence is standardised around EvaClean's PurOne NaDCC cleaner and disinfectant. Not only does PurOne have the first EPA registered biofilm bacteria kill claim, it also eradicates over 55 organisms on 12 EPA lists, including multi-drug resistant and emerging pathogens.
To mitigate cross-contamination, PurOne can also be used with EvaClean's disposable environmental surface wipes or, alternatively, the wipes system can be used to augment existing programs.
Yet, high level efficacy is only half the safety equation. In addition to protecting patients, students and staff, solutions must also protect the environment. EvaClean's advanced chemistries are HMIS rated 0/0/0 with a neutral pH, as well as biodegradable and fully OSHA, NIOSH and JCAHO compliant.
CEO Steve Wilson says: "Long-term sustainability is another important aspect of PurExcellence. Our technologies were specifically designed to deliver both environmental and economic benefits."
Because PurOne and PurTabs, EvaClean's electrostatic sprayer disinfectant, dilute to different strengths for multi-purpose solutions and are highly effective at lower parts per million, it takes less chemical to accomplish more. The tablet format also requires less packaging, translating to less shipping, lowering emissions and environmental impact. When strategies include electrostatic disinfection of all touchpoints, chemical consumption is even further reduced.
The six pillars of EvaClean's PurExcellence initiative are a proactive formula for the prevention of infectious outbreaks and Healthcare Acquired Infections, which adds up to higher quality care and lower associated costs.
