Infection Control System


FloorsHospitals, Clinics, Assisted Living, Dental Offices, Nursing Homes, Emergency Vehicles.


The Greenspeed™ Infection Control System (ICS) is a comprehensive systematic approach to cleaning and disinfecting that incorporates a set of interdependent, evidenced-based components implemented by your Environmental Service staff to enhance your hospital’s cleaning practices.
Environmental surfaces are efficiently and effectively cleaned and disinfected with EPA registered, non-toxic, biodegradable, fast-acting, and safe-to-use solutions. These solutions are applied using hospital tested protocols and state-of-the-art applicators to reduce labor and human error.

OUR SYSTEM:

  • Standardized processes to ensure that high-touch surfaces are consistently cleaned and disinfected.
  • High performance hospital grade microfiber products
  • Objective processes to measure program effectiveness
  • Comprehensive user training course on implementing our easy-to-use,
  • economical and highly effective alternative cleaning and disinfecting system.
  • Ÿ ICS methodology for Cleaning and Disinfection (C&D) of facilities.
  • Ÿ Use and handling of ECA solutions.
  • Ÿ Introduction and use of Disinfectant Misting Sprayers.
  • Ÿ Introduction of Microfiber Technology and proper procedures and use of products.
  • Ÿ Safe working procedures and proper Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
  • Ÿ Monitoring ICS program compliance and evaluation.
Benefits

  • Effective infection control and prevention with no adverse effects on human health and the environment
  • Reduction in labor and chemical costs
  • No dilution and mixing of chemicals
  • Improved operational efficiency
  • Complements existing work flow without affecting turnaround time for discharge cleaning of contact precaution patient rooms
  • Greater comprehensive area coverage in less time than competitive systems and devices
  • 300% greater spray penetration and coverage on all surfaces2
  • Hospital grade, split-fiber, microfiber products for reduced HAI’s, labor and
  • chemical cost
  • Leaves no residue

ICS PRODUCTS


AQUAOX™ Electrochemical Activation (ECA) Solutions

Electrolyzed water is produced by the electrolysis of ordinary tap water containing dissolved sodium chloride. The electrolysis produces two types of solutions. A high-pH, non-corrosive dirt and grease-cutting cleaner (sodium hydroxide) and a neutral-pH, high-dissolved oxygen disinfectant (hypochlorous acid).

AQUAOX™ ECA generated hypochlorous acid (HOCL) will be a major weapon in the battle for infection control acting swiftly and safely against hazardous multi-drug resistant microbes such as Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA), Vancomycin-Resistant Enterococcus (VRE) and Carbapenem-Resistant enterobacteriaceae (CRE). The solutions are non-toxic, made from environmentally safe and sustainable materials and can be used for surface disinfection and decontamination.

  • Ÿ EPA registered Broad Spectrum Hospital Disinfectant
  • Ÿ Kills on contact
  • Ÿ 80 to 100 times greater biocidal activity than 1:10 dilution of household bleach
  • Ÿ Completely non-toxic
  • Ÿ Leaves no residue
  • Ÿ Microorganisms cannot develop resistance
AQUAOX™ ECA generated Sodium Hydroxide (NaOH) is a non-toxic, chemical free solution with anti-microbial properties. Its alkaline characteristics and negative Oxidation Reduction Potential (OPR) emulsifies oils and grease (where bacteria hide), breaks down and suspends dirt particles and prevents them from re-depositing onto the cleaning surface.

  • Ÿ Safe for any hard surface
  • Ÿ Cuts through grease and fat
  • Ÿ Non-toxic and chemical free
  • Ÿ Laboratory tested

GREENSPEED™ Smart Microfiber

Microfiber products were identified as a best practice tool for use in the healthcare industry by the EPA in 2002.3 The unique nature of the product and how it is manufactured make it indispensable in cleaning and disinfecting surfaces and environments.
  • Ÿ Multi-color tabs on cloths and mops are color coded to assure quality cleaning, efficiency and hygienic use
  • Ÿ Fibers are uniquely split to an optimum level for extensive cleaning power and large absorption capacity
  • Ÿ Microfiber mops reduce bacteria on floors by 99% compared to 30% with cotton mops3
  • Ÿ Cleans efficiently using a minimum amount of water and cleaning agent
  • Ÿ Exceptionally long life cycle, even when washed frequently, the microfiber retains its quality and shape to deliver real user value

ATP Cleaning Verification

Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is a coenzyme that is present in all living cells and an ATP monitoring system can detect the amount of organic matter that remains after cleaning an environmental surface.

The Greenspeed™ Infection Control System incorporates ATP monitoring as a real-time objective process to measure program effectiveness.

  • Ÿ Handheld system that is easy to use and can be implemented in any size facility.
  • Ÿ Surface tests are affordable, easy to use, and provide instant results for housekeeping performance assessment

GREENSPEED MICROBIAL CLEAN CERTIFICATION

Laboratory Services

The GREENSPEED Microbial Clean Certification Program recognizes facilities serving the healthcare community that commit to cleanliness through quantified biological testing and inspection. This process eliminates subjectivity by focusing on outcomes and results that verify hard surfaces cleaned in these facilities meet appropriate hygienically clean standards and best management practices for hospitals, surgery centers, medical offices, nursing homes and other medical facilities. GREENSPEED’s Microbial Clean Certification acknowledges facilities’ effectiveness in protecting patients and healthcare workers through testing and inspections that scrutinize quality control procedures in EVS operations.
