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 have been shown to harbor pathogens that contribute to Healthcare Associated Infections
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 mattress cases:
- Top Tears / Cuts
- Base Tears (< 10cm)
- Previously taped
- Small Chemical Damage
To properly maintain the integrity of the CleanPatch®, DO NOT CUT.
Not Recommend Usage
CleanPatch® is not right for all mattress damage. It is highly recommended that CleanPatch® is not used in the following case and instead the mattress should be replaced.
- Sign of Fluid Ingress or Contamination
- Delaminated Area (>5×10 cm)
- Excessive Cracking
- Mattress Warping
- Torn Zippers
- Previously CleanPatch® applied
- Corners (apply to all three sides)
