CDC Recommends Sporicidal Disinfectant for Emerging Fungi
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently updated their recommendations for environmental disinfection of Candida Auris (C. auris) to include the use of an EPA registered sporicidal disinfectant effective against Clostridium difficile spores.
SSS Navigator #62 Perisept Sporicidal Disinfectant (#48027) is an EPA registered disinfectant with a 2 minute kill claim on Clostridium difficile.
According to the CDC:
"C. auris can persist on surfaces in healthcare environments. Quaternary ammonia products that are routinely used for disinfection may not be effective against C. auris.
Thorough daily and terminal cleaning and disinfection of patients’ rooms and cleaning and disinfection of areas outside of their rooms where they receive care (e.g., radiology, physical therapy) is necessary. Shared equipment (e.g., ventilators, physical therapy equipment) should also be cleaned and disinfected before being used by another patient."
SSS Navigator #62 Perisept Sporicidal Disinfectant Cleaner in conjunction with SSS Peritex EVS Wipes or NexGen Microfiber are highly recommended to clean and disinfect these areas.
