Monitor the Health of Your Facility with AccuPoint-HC
Hospital acquired infections (HAI) are a significant cause of extended patient stays, rising facility costs and even mortality rates. Independent studies have shown that environmental surfaces are a leading source for HAI’s. Verifying that cleaning has been effective has never been easy or quick, until now. Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is the energy source for all living cells. It is an excellent marker for biological contamination, including key environmental pathogens such as C.dif and S.aureus. The AccuPoint-HC system can analyze a collected sample in 30 seconds and indicate whether a surface is clean. Unlike other systems, AccuPoint-HC has been customized for use in a healthcare setting. This includes the information displayed on the reader as well as the powerful Data Manager software. Track and trend data to spot problem areas, document results, and demonstrate total quality improvement with this powerful software, included with the reader. The unique design of the collection sampler is superior to traditional swabs. The flat surface comes in complete contact with the area being sampled, insuring a more thorough and accurate result. The self contained cartridge is a complete and easy to use tool whose design minimizes the opportunity for false positive results from poor collection technique. Adoption of an auditing program utilizing the AccuPoint-HC removes the subjectivity to evaluating cleaning effectiveness, and will provide actionable data from trending results. Feedback from testing can be used for training of staff, and documentation of facility improvement - always a key focus of Joint Commission, CMS and other auditing bodies.
