Aged Care

It is undisputed that thorough cleaning and disinfection of healthcare surfaces and equipment is an essential step in reducing the risk of infections, studies suggest that only 30 to 50 percent of surfaces in aged care patient rooms and operating rooms are effectively disinfected* and nearly 85 percent of hospital wheelchairs are contaminated with Staphylococcus aureus or Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).**

Using patented electrostatic technology to optimise product delivery, the Clorox® Total 360® System provides an efficient, cost-effective solution to overcome this challenge and enhance environmental hygiene in a wide range of healthcare settings.

The Clorox® Total 360® System combines electrostatic technology with the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) -registered Clorox® disinfecting and sanitising solutions to quickly and effectively provide superior coverage in even the hardest-to-reach places. This system is very quick and less disruptive than other solutions, consequently your residents can be moved into say the dining area while their rooms are treated.

OXIVIR® TB is also a suitable option for aged care providers, as the application process is very quick and thorough with a short re entry time, making this a great option for aged care facilities where mobility can be an issue.
