ICP Medical LLC reducing hospital infections with Timestrip
ICP Medical LLC is a leading infection control and prevention manufacturer serving hospitals and medical facilities around the world to improve hygiene compliance by the regular replacement of hospital privacy curtains.
ICP Medical’s brand is Rapid Refresh™ a product which line provides optimal solutions to lower costs, increase compliance, and minimize the instance of deadly and costly HAIs. With a focus on innovative technology designed to meet healthcare challenges.
Hospital privacy curtains can become contaminated with dangerous bacteria such as methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) and Clostridium difficile (C. diff) over time. ICP Medical LLC required a visual indicator to alert staff as to when the recommended time to change the curtains is.
ICP Medical LLC added Timestrip time indicators to their Rapid Refresh™ hospital privacy curtains to ensure curtains are refreshed regularly to prevent infection.
The Timestrip indicator window on the Rapid Refresh™ curtains, after simple finger activation, gradually fills with colour during the recommended life of the curtain. When the indicator is completely red, the curtain needs to be refreshed. With a glance, the hospital staff can clearly see how long the curtain has been in use and if it is ready to be in place- no guesswork needed!
“Our Rapid Refresh™ brand is all about simplifying the job of the healthcare worker by making it fast and easy to refresh a curtain. We are excited to offer a revolutionary product that makes managing curtain changes easy for increased compliance and a safer environment.“
