Reduce the Spread of Infectious Diseases in Medical Facilities with Banner Stakes

Retractable Barriers For Medical Facilities

Banner Stakes, a recognized manufacturer of Safety and Hazard Communication , offers several options for helping control the spread of Infectious Disease with in Medical Facilities.

According to the CDC, hospitals incur over $30 billion in costs each year from healthcare associated infections (HAIs). Clostridium Difficile (i.e. C.diff), a growing concern in healthcare facilities, was estimated to cause almost half a million infections in the United States in 2011.

29,000 died within 30 days of the initial diagnosis.

The majority of C. diff cases occur in or after exposure to health care settings – including hospitals, nursing homes, and long-term care facilities. Without proper infection control programs in place, C. diff spreads easily in any facility.

Infectious pathogens spread mainly from hands to high touch surfaces such as furniture, beds, tables, medical equipment, and remote controls in patient rooms to walls, floors, door handles, and hospital equipment.
