Infection control company, Bio-Rite, has announced it is to attend the NHS Highland Conference on Infection Control Matters.
It hopes to showcase its infection control solutions as well as meet new contacts to discuss strategies to help the spread of diseases.
The firm treats more than 250,000 items of healthcare equipment each year through its community care equipment decontamination programme.
“The IPS is involved in running regional educational conferences and seminars throughout the year and we regularly attend,” said Alan Wright, managing director at Bio-Rite.
“From Bio-Rite’s perspective these events are an excellent opportunity to build relationships with delegates who are responsible for infection control. It also provides an ideal forum to showcase our industry leading infection control solutions in order to help staff trying to cope with the threat from common infections such as MRSA, C.Difficile and Norovirus.
“As a group, Bio-Rite has 40 years’ experience infection prevention and is one of the few companies in the UK able to offer the range of products and services that are needed to ensure an infection free healthcare environment,” explained Wright.
“Bio-Rite offers UV decontamination and 3D hydrogen peroxide vapour for area decontamination. In addition, Bio-Rite provides community care equipment decontamination and recycling plus a mattress decontamination service.
“Our mobile operation also allows used care equipment to be decontaminated safely and effectively on-site in a specially designed hydrogen peroxide chamber housed within an adapted vehicle. Rapid turn-around means mattresses and equipment can be returned to the hospital or care home on the same day, optimising the use of valuable resources and protecting patients.”
At the IPS event Bio-Rite will also be showing Eye Train which is cutting edge virtual reality (VR) technology developed to deliver training modules. It anticipates this will be a particularly valuable tool to create short immersive and interactive films for the healthcare sector and it has already been commissioned to develop one to cover hand hygiene in hospitals.
