The Problem: For germs, visiting hours are never over.

 

Germs, such as bacteria and mould, like to settle down and start a family in the same conditions as your residents – warm, cozy and not too dry.

Germs can last 24-48 hours on surfaces, during which time things like bacteria reproduce exponentially. One single cell can become more than 8 million cells in less than 24 hours.

How do they get there?

  • Patients and visitors bring germs home from day-to-day activities – school, work, play etc.
  • Healthcare workers forgetting to wash their hands – not 100% compliant with hand hygiene rules
  • Janitorial staff unknowingly spread them surface-to-surface on cloths etc.

There are a million ways that germs can come into your buildings. Although many microbes are a necessary part of life, the few that are bad are really bad and can cause sickness, disease and in some cases, death.
