TOMI’s SteraMist Binary Ionization Technology (BIT) is an innovative EPA-registered disinfectant developed by the U.S. Government and DARPA. Steramist breaks the biofilm (with a six-log kill) and its Binary Ionization Technology means large and complex areas can be supercleaned in a fraction of the time it normally takes – with an efficacy and safety that far outstrips traditional hospital cleaning methods.
Be Proactive In Disaster Management.
Whether your facility is a hospital, rehabilitation center, medical office, or assisted living facility, Cousino Medical Services understands how critical it is that you remain open and in full compliance at all times.
During the response and recovery of your loss, or planned remodel projects, Cousino Medical Services will closely follow infection control procedures as specified by the ICRA (Infection Control Risk Assessment) to ensure compliance and patient safety.
Nosocomial Infections are infections acquired within a hospital environment.
Approximately 5,000 to 7,000 deaths per year are believed to be caused by construction workers and contractors in hospitals and outpatient facilities. These deaths are directly related to a lack of compliance protocol and training in infection control during the construction/cleaning process.
It is critical that hospitals and medical facilities manage risk and liability wisely by hiring restoration companies that understand and can follow the standards of ICRA. These standards are mandated by the Joint Commission, the accrediting organization for hospitals, and call for criteria that address the exposure risk to infectious diseases during real work time. The CDC strongly recommends following the ICRA standards during any demolition or renovation project.
Cousino Medical Services is certified in Healthcare Construction from The American Society for Healthcare Engineering (ASHE) of the American Hospital Association.
