GREEN BAY, Wis., Dec. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- PureCart Systems LLC, announces the launch of PureMist, a new, innovative product designed as a portable disinfecting system for healthcare facilities. The system, which can be used on a variety of surfaces such as wheelchairs, equipment, patient beds and rooms, provides a one-step, hospital-grade disinfectant that is applied as a fine mist and does not require wiping or rinsing.
"Continually striving to control the spread of infection and improving patient care are a huge focus in the healthcare industry," said Jim Kratowicz, president of PureCart Systems. "Applying a disinfectant as a mist provides the ability to disinfect hard-to-reach areas and is less apt for human error over traditional methods, such as wiping or mopping. The system is compact, very easy to use and can be moved throughout a facility. In addition, organizations can realize significant savings by reducing the time it takes to disinfect equipment or prepare a room."
It is estimated that health providers incur a cost of $15,275 (avg.) for every infection contracted at a healthcare facility(1). Further, it is estimated that $30.5 billion is spent annually treating healthcare infections(1). "Utilizing a known hospital-grade disinfectant in conjunction with a more effective distribution method is a very powerful combination for reducing infections and improving patient care," said Kratowicz. "Preventing just one infection would provide a significant return for a healthcare organization."
PureMist is easy to use, requires access to a 110 VAC to operate, and occasional access to a fresh water supply in order to replenish the mixed disinfectant. The system includes a misting gun connected to a 50' retractable hose and also includes a pressure rinse/soap option to remove moderate surface grime prior to disinfecting.
