Healthcare Facilities are a hotspot for many types of harmful microbials. CIMR Technology is a proven real-time solution to reducing SARS-CoV-2 (Covid) and the spread of other airborne and surface pathogens.
Note: CIMR Technology has been tested and used in many different settings, most recently in temporary medical facilities (including field hospitals and tents).
Even prior to the onset of the current COVID 19 Pandemic, the World Health Organization (WHO) stated that poor indoor air quality is the No. 1 cause of death worldwide. One out of 25 people admitted to a health care facility contract a Hospital Acquired Infection (HAI). Hospital Acquired Infections (HAI’s) consistently cause over 100,000 deaths with an associated cost of over $1 billion in the United States.
Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus ( MRSA), a bacterium that causes infections in different parts of the body, Listeria, a genus of bacteria that acts as an intracellular parasite, and a wide range of other Virus, Bacteria, can be very challenging in hospitals and health care facilities, and are increasingly being tracked and reported. This industry is under increasing pressure to have their own Environmental and Safety Governance (ESG) standards and guidelines, which are applicable to many other industries.
In the era of SARS-CoV-2 causing COVID 19 – a significant number of COVID 19 clusters have incurred in long term care facilities, filled with high-risk occupants. Not only has this been a tragic source of fatalities, but it has also brought risk and concerns to health care and other workers and has very sadly prohibited families from visiting loved ones and to be with them in their last hours.
We know that COVID 19 is predominantly transmitted through aerosolized SARs-CoV-2 virus – often in very small particle sizes – remaining in the air longer and spreading further than previously thought. These challenges are costly; patients have been avoiding medical facilities and many health care workers are concerned about their health and the risk of bringing diseases and infection home to their families.
CIMR Technology is an Active Air Infusion Pathogen Scavenging Technology that infuses all of the indoor air with a virus and pathogen eliminating, ultra-low level, completely safe hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) that permeates wall to wall, floor to ceiling, anywhere air can reach and will sanitize the air, surfaces and any object or item inside the room/space.
