Infection control with single use
Single-use surgical solutions can support infection control – while there is no guarantee that reusable solutions are fresh and hygienic.
Multiple-patient-use (reusable) drapes and gowns provide no guarantee of consistent quality in terms of infection prevention and control management; with a 2001 study showing that 56% were found to have faults that could impact negatively on functionality
Furthermore within the same study, only 20% of the drapes tested proved to be impermeable to bacteria
BARRIER® single use surgical drapes and surgical gowns can help provide effective protection, consistent quality and patient safety.
- Effective protection: New every time for each use with no repair patches added to products
- Quality standards: Consistent quality and fully tested in accordance with EN13795
- Patient safety: Helping to manage the risk of surgical site infections
