Removing urine from the Healthcare Environment - Video Presentation

Healthcare

Infection control is crucial to a risk-free, strong and effective healthcare system. Healthcare facilities adopt hygiene standards and infection control policies and procedures to minimise the risk of infection both for patients and healthcare workers.

However infections such as MRSA & VRSA are becoming more rampant in the Australian hospital and healthcare system.

Hospital and healthcare environments provide ideal breeding grounds for micro-organisms. Bodily fluids (including urine) can be found on many surfaces such bedding, mattresses, carpets, flooring, upholstery, wheelchairs and other areas commonly touched by patients, staff and visitors.

Urine is essentially sterile but once exposed to micro-organisms found in air, on skin and other exposed surfaces can become a breeding ground for harmful pathogens.

Australian Healthcare Guidelines specify that all furnishings and fixtures, soft and hard floors must be free of stains, spillages and have no odour that is distasteful or unpleasant. Urine odours and stains not only smell offensive but are often difficult to remove completely.

Most standard cleaning products including strong sanitising and disinfecting chemicals, simply don’t remove urine stains and odours completely. Consequently, uric acid crystals remain to damage and corrode metal surfaces such as wheelchairs and leave permanents stains and lingering odours on assets such as mattresses, chairs and other furnishings. Replacement of these items can be costly but unnecessary if the right product is used.

urineFREE® offers a safe, effective & environmentally friendly solution to this problem.

urineFREE works on the biological combination of urine – urea, urochrome and uric acid crystals. Most general cleaners merely remove the water soluble components of urine (urea and urochrome) but leave behind the non soluble uric acid crystals that retain the odour and stain.

urineFREE’s special formula eliminates the uric acid crystals and the urea and urochrome components, removing both the stain and the odour FOR GOOD.

urineFREE contains no harsh or hazardous ingredients, is biodegradable and environmentally friendly and is safe to use around humans and animals. Better yet, urineFREE is water based so will do no more damage to surfaces, fittings and furnishings than water would.

Many urine stains are invisible to the naked eye, yet certainly not to the nose. However, the source of the smell can often be difficult to trace.  urineFREE® Urine Detector solves this problem. Using LED light technology, similar to that used by Police Forensic Officers, the pocket size torch will fluoresce dried urine in a darkened room, making it easy to identify and treat the right area. Then, after treatment in accordance with the product directions, use urineFREE Urine Detector again to check that urine deposits have been removed.

Healthcare facilities across Australia now have a proven solution for the removal of urine stains and urine odours leaving a clean, hygienic & welcoming environment.
