Surfaces play an important role in the transmission of healthcare acquired infections (HAI), and thorough cleaning of the surgical environment is crucial to patient safety. Damaged soft surfaces, including operating tables and stretcher mattresses, cannot be properly cleaned and may harbour pathogens that pose a risk for cross contamination.
CleanPatch® is the first Health Canada and FDA registered Class 1 medical device specifically designed to restore damaged mattresses to an intact and hygienic state. CleanPatch® has been extensively tested.
Damaged mattresses are common in healthcare facilities, and it is important to repair damage quickly. When a mattress is damaged, it cannot be properly disinfected and may harbor dangerous pathogens, increasing the risk of HAIs among patients.
Studies in Canada, US, and UK reveal that 26% to 48% of mattresses in circulation are damaged. CleanPatch® should only be used in the following types of damages:
- Top Tears / Cuts
- Base Tears (< 10cm)
- Previously taped
- Small Chemical Damage
To properly maintain the integrity of the CleanPatch®, DO NOT CUT.
WHEN IS REPAIR NOT RECOMMENDED?
Not all damaged mattresses should be repaired. Mattress replacement is recommended if any of the following is observed:
- Sign of Fluid Ingress or Contamination
- Delaminated Area greater than 2 x 4in (5 x 10cm)
- Excessive Cracking
- Mattress Warping
- Torn Zippers
- All three sides of a corner are damaged
