Midbrook Pushes for Innovation in Medical Decontamination
Date:8/12/2009

Midbrook Medical is working hard to improve the medical decontamination field.

(Vocus) August 12, 2009 -- Midbrook (Jackson, MI) began as a custom sheet metal fabrication house and rapidly expanded to become a world leader in parts washing technology for the automotive industry. Midbrook is the preferred vendor of in-process, high volume, production line transmission part cleaning systems for major automotive manufacturers throughout the world.

Over the past three years, Midbrook has been working diligently to bring their cleaning and sheet metal fabrication expertise into new areas, including the medical industry.

Midbrook is able to bring the same advances to medical cleaning that they brought to automotive cleaning. Throughout the 1980s and 90s, Midbrook worked with the major automotive manufacturers to develop acceptable cleanliness specifications. Midbrook was key in the establishment of objective, measurable cleanliness specifications that assure consistent, repeatable results are achieved for each produced part through the cleaning segment of the manufacturing process.

“Our goal is to bring that level of repeatability and effectiveness to medical cleaning,” said Midbrook Business Development Director James Crowley.

“If you clean parts, but don’t have a goal or a repeatable process, then the cleaning is wasted money and time,” said Crowley. “But if you establish a specific cleanliness objective, you can design a process to meet that specification and make cleaning an efficient, valuable part of your operation.”

Better, more efficient cleaning will improve the quality of medical care and also will make a difference in the medical industry’s ability to limit the exposure of each health care facility to the liability associated with hospital acquired infections. Hospital acquired infections are a growing problem in the field and fewer insurance plans are covering the cost of treatment.

Midbrook Medical has developed, so far, two new washers to service the medical field.

“Our Tempest Cart Washer utilizes moderate all area spray pressure, elevated rinse solution temperature and heated blow off to decontaminate mobile carts, beds, wheel chairs and other large operating room items,” said Crowley.

The Surgical Device Washer is designed to clean surgical tools with innovative ultrasonic technology.

“The Surgical Device Washer uses a combination of higher temperature wash and rinse solutions, agitation and ultra-sonics to clean the outside of surgical devices while, at the same time using higher pressure and air injected solution through ports to clean the interior lumens of canulated instruments,” said Crowley.

Midbrook’s cleaning innovation extends to the construction of work surfaces and storage areas in medical facilities. In order to contain hospital infections, Midbrook understands that not only must the equipment be cleaned, but the surfaces within each department must remain clean. By replacing out-dated particle board laminate surfaces with copper, stainless steel, or Corian®, hospitals can better control and eliminate the potential of infection to workers and patients.

“Copper is known as a natural decontaminator and the use of it on work surfaces helps limits the growth and spread of HAIs,” said Crowley. “But it’s only recently that people have started taking the idea of copper as a surface construction material seriously.”

"We're going to keep researching and trying to improve our products," said Crowley. "Midbrook understands that you can never get complacent with decontamination methods, especially in a field like health care."
