Healthcare and EMS

Healthcare has always recognized the need for disinfection, but balancing safety for staff, ease of use, and efficacy is a challenge–one that CURIS believes must be met. Unfortunately, many facility managers and infection preventionists feel overwhelmed or un-equipped to fully disinfect their environments and resort to using less effective technologies. 

Efficacy

Many current decontamination products eliminate only 99.9 - 99.99% of pathogens, leaving thousands of pathogens behind. Since it only takes 1-100 viable bacteria or viruses to infect a person, comprehensive disinfection of 99.9999% is essential.

Hospital Acquired Conditions

Hospital acquired conditions like C. diff remain one of the biggest concerns for hospital staff and patients alike. Patients might check in for a surgery, but leave with a MRSA, VRE, CRE, Pseudomonas, or Candida infection, often transferred from unwiped surfaces or left behind from a previous patient. Ambulances, ORs, and patient rooms need disinfection that reaches every nook, cranny, and crevice.

Reprocessing N95s and PPE

Since personal protective equipment is one of the first lines of defense against harmful pathogens, PPE supplies are scarce as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. First responders and hospitals are now responsible for reprocessing PPE and decontamination of N95 respirators. A study by Penn State University shows that CURIS is an effective way to disinfect N95 respirators. EMS, fire rescue, and hospitals across the country use VHP to safely reprocess their N95 masks for reuse.

Custom Decontamination Chamber

In answer to the increased demand for this reprocessing, CURIS has partnered with Spire Integrated Solutions to provide a dedicated decontamination chamber with the ability to “port in” CURIS HHP™.  Healthcare providers can now use CURIS to treat their patient rooms, ORs, and N95s with the same, reliable technology.

Portable Decontamination Device for EMS, Fire Rescue, and Emergency Preparedness 

CURIS has been in the EMS world for many years helping first responders stay safe within their ambulances. In addition to helping protect patients in their vehicles, many EMS and fire rescue units have reported significant reductions in absentee rates due to the introduction of CURIS.

Empower your staff and protect your facility with remote or manual operation that’s EPA registered and validated thanks to CURIS portable disinfection devices. Designed to help reduce human error, the hands-free system with remote operation and auto calculation allows you to monitor, manage, track, and report quickly to prove and improve your decontamination efforts.
