ASP Launches GLOSAIR™ Healthcare Environmental Decontamination at the 2011 APIC Conference to Protect Against the Risk of Deadly Infections in Healthcare Facilities
Date:6/27/2011

IRVINE, Calif., June 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Advanced Sterilization Products (ASP) announced today the launch of an innovative infection prevention technology – GLOSAIR™ Healthcare Environmental Decontamination – that provides effective, safe(1) and thorough disinfection of hospital rooms and operating suites to reduce the risk of patient contact with infection-causing pathogens. There is a growing scientific consensus that the patient environment is a key source in the transmission of healthcare-associated infections (HAIs), as routine cleaning of healthcare facilities does not always eliminate pathogens(2). Use of GLOSAIR™ to augment manual cleaning processes has been shown to be more effective in the reduction of HAI pathogens as compared to cleaning alone.

"Despite healthcare facilities' efforts to properly clean and disinfect patient and procedure rooms as well as operating suites, studies show deadly infections borne by pathogens can continue to live on surfaces, such as bed rails, television remotes and IV pumps, and over time infect other patients," said Dr. William Jarvis(3), a global expert on HAI control and prevention. "The good news is that infections related to the healthcare environment are almost always preventable and hospitals now have new infection prevention tools to safely and effectively disinfect the patient environment, which can help keep patients safe."

GLOSAIR™ Healthcare Environmental Decontamination is the newest technology available to help healthcare facilities improve patient safety, and is the focus of an educational symposium today at the Association for Professionals in Infection
