Infection Control Is Essential to Your Health Care Facility
1. Is controlling the risk of illness and infection important to your practice?
2. What does it cost to settle a lawsuit or to reverse an adverse public opinion?
3. Is saving money key to your hospital, surgical center or medical clinic?
Get in the Clean Zone with OZone!
Introducing the Only Scientifically Proven, Environmentally Friendly, and Easily Installed Ozone Faucet System Available in North America.
Ozone exposure kills most pathogens in seconds. Ozone is one of natures most powerful anti-microbrials.
Perfect for Scrubbing In and For Sanitizing All Surfaces
1. Advantages Of The Ozone Faucet System
Ozone is the most powerful oxidant for disinfecting water or sanitizing surfaces. Ozone can kill pathogens in seconds, whereas other oxidants take several minutes to disinfect.
The aqueous tri-oxide O3 faucet system’s patented design finally makes the point-of-use aqueous tri-oxide production efficient, practical and cost effective. The design allows for the creation of Ozone water on tap.
Aqueous tri-oxide faucet instantly produces aqueous ozone in concentrations from 0.5 to 0.9 parts per million.
By washing with fresh Ozone water for 10-30 seconds, you can:
- kill 99.9% of bacteria and viruses on contact
- Clean Surfaces: Hands, Sinks, Basin, Worktops, Counters Etc..
- Remove Chemical Residues
- Remove Chlorine and its unpleasant taste from tap water
- Ozone is FDA approved for direct contact application!
Ozone water is nature’s natural way for sanitizing all it touches in seconds. Kills bacteria, removes pesticides and eliminates odors.
2. The Financial Aspect
Low Cost. High Reward.
Tri-Oxide Ozone faucets can save millions of dollars over its lifetime. A typical ozone faucet will produce over 1.4 million gallons of disinfecting aqueous tri-oxide for a cost of approximately $0.0015 per gallon. Other sanitizing products have a significantly higher cost. These include hydrogen peroxide spray at $18.65/gallon, CaviCide at $29.58/gallon, Sanitizing Wipes at $12.48/60 wipes, Clorox Broad Spectrum Disinfectant at $32.00/gallon.
Cost savings of between $2000 and $3000 per year by eliminating some chemical sanitizers. The O3 ozonated water under our facility sink cost us only about $2500.
3. Environmentally Friendly and Safe
Aqueous Ozone Is FDA and EPA Approved
Ozone is an unstable molecule which quickly changes back into oxygen. The half life of the ozone in air to decompose is 20 to 60 minutes depending on the temperature and humidity of the ambient air. Although ozone is a strong oxidizer that eliminates bacteria and viruses, it is not harmful to humans at low concentrations.
Aqueous ozone changes back to pure water in the same 20 minutes leaving no harmful residue. After the ozone eliminates the pathogen, nothing but clean water is left on the contacted surface or down the sink drain.
Nothing but oure H2O and O2 remain after use. Non toxins on a surface or fown the drain. Aqueous O3 overspill produced is well below the EPA safety standards.
4. In the U.S. hospital-acquired infections run rampant
Each year in the United States, thousand of patients seek medical care at both inpatient and outpatient facilities, but emerge from routine, urgent or surgical care with an additional and sometimes untreatable, life threatening illness. On an average day, 1 in 25 patients has at least one infection contracted from a hospital visit. An estimated 100,000 hospital patients fall victim to infections every year, mostly from drug resistant “superbugs”. This is partly because doctors and nurses are failing to comply with the most basic hygiene rules, such as washing their hands between treatments.
According to the CDC, the most common hospital-acquired infections are:
- Pneumonia (22 percent)
- Surgical Site Infections (22 percent)
- Gastrointestinal Infections (17 percent)
- Urinary Tract Infections (13 percent)
- Bloodstream Infections (10 percent)
The most common germs responsible for hospital-acquired infections are:
- C. difficile (12 percent)
- Staphylococcus aureus including MRSA (11 percent)
- Klebsiella (10 Percent)
- Enterococcus (9 percent)
- Pseudomonas (7 percent)
Hospitals have attempted to combat the infection problem by installing more sinks, but dirty sinks can make the issue worse. The sinks themselves must be clean. The water flowing through the faucet into the sink can contain bacteria which band together to form biofilm colonies that attach to a surface. These water dwelling bacteria live and thrive in this environment. They must be eliminated.
