Winter Park, FL (PRWEB) August 5, 2009 -- On Friday, August 7, 2009, at 10 a.m., the City of Winter Park will demonstrate how its partnership with AeroClave, LLC, can help stop the spread of disease and infection. According to the Center for Disease Control and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) such as MRSA and other contagious viruses and bacteria:
- are one of the leading, most preventable causes of morbidity and mortality in U.S.;
- are the cause of over 100,000 deaths per year;
- can cost in excess of $45 billion per year.
The revolutionary new system that AeroClave has produced can mitigate this threat of HAIs and even contagious pathogens such as H1N1 influenza (swine flu) to our city's first responders, hospitals, healthcare workers and citizens. This is accomplished through the complete decontamination of both the interior and exterior of large assets such as airplanes, ambulances, emergency vehicles, police cars and hospital rolling stock, such as stretchers and wheel chairs, in less than two hours.
Not only can AeroClave's system save billions of dollars in stopping the spread of HAIs, it also allows leaders to take a proactive approach to the global healthcare problem, increase preparedness for pandemic influenza and bioterrorism, and protect the health of emergency personnel, patients, hospitals and other critical assets.
The AeroClave PADS (Portable Asset Decontamination System) Demonstration Facility is located at 650 South Capen Avenue in Winter Park, Fla. For more information, please visit AeroClave's official Web site
