Does your healthcare uniforms and other soft touch surfaces in your workplace offer protection against the lingering bacteria and other pathogens you are exposed to on a daily basis? Even before Human Coronavirus changed the face of healthcare as we know it, Healthcare Acquired Infections (HAIs) were widely acknowledged as one of the world’s leading healthcare challenges, although many experts believe that up to a third of HAI may be preventable.

SilverGuard, powered by IONIC+™, combats soft surface bacterial management.

In the healthcare environment soft surface, bacterial management is a crucial area that has yet to be addressed in a systematic and formal way. Multiple studies have shown that soft surfaces – such as but not limited to bed linens, laboratory coats, patient gowns, privacy curtains, scrubs, uniforms – in the healthcare environment are contaminated and cross-contamination from other surfaces to skin and other surfaces are proven to frequently occur. 

Even though soft surfaces cover 90% of the patient contact environment and are continuously exposed to pathogens between launderings, they are often overlooked in everyday infection prevention practices. Silverguard Healthcare textile products utilizes pure metallic silver which is permanently woven into the fabric. This has been clinically proven to reduce 99.9% of pathogens on fabric within 4 hours. The silver thread technology ensures no behavioural modification is required by staff.

The SilverGuard Healthcare range of products includes:

  • Scrubs
  • Bed linen
  • Towels
  • Privacy curtains
