Did you know?
To reach your hospital mattress expected life as defined by the manufacturer, you must follow the disinfection process in the manufacturer’s IFU, which typically
costs more in extra staff time and additional supplies
Even if you spend that additional money and time, mattress disinfection IFU do not adequately address C-diff and other antibiotic-resistant pathogens. If you use bleach and other harsh chemicals to help protect your patients, it may void your warranty, accelerate surface damage, and force earlier mattress skin replacement ($250-$1,500 each) to avoid total mattress failure (up to $15,000). The result:
more cost, more often
Even with all these costs, you have not assured patient safety.
Dozens of studies have shown that hospital mattresses harbor pathogens even after disinfection.
