SSS Perisept Sporicidal Disinfectant Cleaner Recognized in Compass One Healthcare Study
SSS Perisept Sporicidal Disinfectant Cleaner Recognized
- 68% C.diff reduction at Novant Health System
- 40% C.diff reduction Medical University of South Carolina
Compass One Healthcare recently launched The Five Pillars of Safety in Healthcare: The Power of Clean, a white paper, which details industry-leading strategic best practices and protocols to decrease healthcare associated infections (HAIs) and environmental contamination in hospital-settings. The white paper is particularly timely as it highlights the ways standard operating protocols should be enhanced and expanded during a pandemic like COVID-19.
SSS Navigator #62 Perisept Sporicidal Disinfectant Cleaner was recognized in the white paper by Compass One Healthcare as a cutting-edge technology for the dramatic reduction of Clostridium difficile infection rates at two renowned hospital systems, the Novant Health System, Winston-Salem, NC and the Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, SC.
Although the battle against COVID-19 remains at the forefront of today’s discussion, healthcare and long-term care facilities must still contend with C.diff transmission rates.
The Novant Health System documented a 68% reduction in C.diff cases over two years after the implementation of Perisept and MUSC had a 40% reduction in just 10 months.
Perisept with a fast, 2-minute kill time on C.diff and a 99.9999% efficacy offers a higher level of cleaning and disinfection when used with a trained environmental services (EVS) staff.
“The key to Perisept is having it communicated properly to the hospital staff and patients. The transition [to Perisept] at Novant was smooth and painless because we took the time to educate and train,” commented John Paul Laberge, System Director of EVS.
Ray Ranger, director of healthcare markets for Triple S, mentioned, “Both the Novant and MUSC environmental service staffs were very engaged throughout the training process when learning how to use Perisept to reduce healthcare-acquired infection rates. They understand it takes products, processes, and people to deliver better outcomes.”
“With the average cost of a C.diff case estimated at $10,000, Novant saved up to $2.3M by implementing Perisept”, said Alex Tepper, healthcare specialist for Next-Gen Supply Group, the distributor of Perisept to hospitals cleaned by Compass One.
