Type: White Paper

Continuous Active Disinfectants (CADs) and other continuous room decontamination technologies may reduce or eliminate the problem of recontamination and minimize the role of contaminated environmental surfaces and equipment in transmission of healthcare pathogens and prevent Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAIs). Further, the use of a CAD will improve the efficiency of Environmental Services staff and HCP with responsibility for cleaning and disinfecting reusable patient care equipment with application required only once every 24 hours.
