A huge percentage of populations worldwide are affected by infections acquired from hospitals. Infections generated from hospitals are a major challenge to public healthcare systems.
In order to avoid the risk of infections it is necessary to ensure the hospitals are properly disinfected and sanitized. The most common methods of sanitizing is with the use of disinfectant solutions. Contaminated surfaces are sources of infections and require care of high level of compliance with recommended hand hygiene policies and appropriate cleaning and disinfection of medical equipment and environmental surfaces.
The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that at any time, more than 1.4million people worldwide are affected by infections acquired in hospitals. Cleaning, disinfection and sanitization saves lives and improves patient outcomes. Between 5% and 10% of patients admitted to hospitals acquire one or more healthcare-associated infections.
Most Common Bacteria found in Hospitals
- Clostridium difficile ( C. difficile)
- Escherichia coli (E. coli)
- Pseudomonas aeruginosa
- Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)
- Vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus (VRE)
- Bacillus atropheus
- Bacillus subtilis
- Mycobacterium terrae (surrogate for Mycobacterium tuberculosis)
- Klebsiella pneumoniae
What Pristine Water can offer for your Hospital
Disinfection and Housekeeping:
Pristine Water offer PristineSafe® the latest innovation in disinfection technology. PristineSafe® system produces the required disinfectant ‘on-site’ as per your requirement.
PristineSafe® r produces Sodium hypochlorite-based disinfectant which is used as a broad-spectrum disinfectant in hospitals and hotels. Chlorine based disinfection is recommended by the UK Health Authority as the preferred disinfectant to kill harmful and difficult to treat bacteria like Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Clostridium difficile (C.Difficle). The required concentration will depend on the amount of organic material present on the surface to be cleaned and disinfected. Different concentrations of chlorine needs to be used to disinfect counter tops, floors, tonometer heads, needles, syringes, laundry, dental appliances, hydrotherapy tanks, water distribution instruments in hemo-dialysis instruments, and regulated medical waste prior to disposal. It is recommended that the sodium hypochlorite solution be made fresh every day. Pristine Water PristineSafe® is the perfect solution for achieving this goal.
Hospital Effluent Management:
Hospital waste-water is one of the most dangerous types of pollution. These waste-waters are contaminated with pathogens, such as bacteria, viruses, and parasites, as well as hazardous chemical compounds, pharmaceutical compounds, and radioactive isotopes.
Electrolytic scale removal for the cooling systems
Scale formation is a common problem in the cooling system of the Hospitals. Scale formation due to salts in the cooling water reduces the efficiency of the cooling system. Instead of adding additional chemicals to descale the cooling tower, Pristine Water Electrolytic scale removal system provides a chemical free, cost efficient and effective method to descale the cooling system.
Disinfectant generator for general hygiene of Hospitals
Instead of buying surface cleaning chemicals every month, Pristine Water PristineSafe® system makes the disinfectant for you at yourhospital. No more chemical costs, stocking nightmares and vendor follow ups. The disinfectant solution produced by the system is effective and low cost.
Disinfectant generator for the hospital kitchen
In a hospital kitchen the cleanliness and hygiene is paramount. The Pristine Water PristineSafe® system helps you generate your own chlorine-based disinfectant that you can use to wipe down your kitchen surface, clean cutlery, knives and utensils and even wash your produce with.
Chlorination system for the fire water system
Fire safety requires each hospital to have a functioning fire safety system where water is constantly available at high pressure should the need arise. This water in this fire system needs to be free of algae and contaminants so that when the tap is opened disinfected clean water flows out without any blockages to effectively douse out a fire. Pristine water Electrochlorination systems do just that. They generate the liquid chlorine required to disinfect the fire water onsite and constantly circulate it through the fire water system.
Electrocoagulation for waste water treatment
Pristine Water offers E-Coag, the best electrocoagulation technology for treatment of waste-water. It is simple and easy to operate, good settling ability of the sludge, lower sludge production, bigger produced flocks compared to the chemical treatment, and reducing the secondary pollution by not using the chemical compounds and also being economic, safe and environmentally friendly. The other capability of this process is the removal of contaminants, such as heavy metals. For instance, it is utilized for the removal of chromium, colloidal and suspended solids, fat, oil, grease, organic compounds, bacteria, viruses, cysts, dye mono-azo acid red, and dye oranges from aqueous environment. Electrocoagulation process is suitable for a wide variety of waste-water treatment plants, such as dairy products, removal of cyanide, biochemical oxygen demand, and chemical oxygen demand (COD) from olive oil waste-water and removal of detergent from industrial waste-water of automobile industry.
