Soft surfaces are contaminated
Despite today's extensive efforts to prevent the spread of germs and bacteria, Healthcare Acquired Infections (HAIs) continue to be one of the world's most pressing and expensive healthcare problems. Treating HAIs costs more than $30,000 per patient. To make matters worse, CMS and insurance companies will no longer reimburse hospitals for HAIs deemed preventable.
While today's standards for preventing HAIs focus on patient screening, hand washing and sterilizing hard surfaces, soft surfaces remain unaddressed. And this missing step is perhaps the greatest challenge to reducing HAIs.
X-STATIC® antimicrobial fabric is the solution
Soft surfaces made with X-STATIC® fibers are clinically proven in laboratory studies to reduce bacterial growth on textile surfaces by 99.9% within one hour. A global leader in antimicrobial fiber technology, X-STATIC® even inhibits the growth of multidrug-resistant strains of bacteria, including MRSA and VRE.*
