The Proactive Risk Minimizer

What’s lurking in your linens?

You follow hand hygiene protocols.  Disinfect every hard surface. But when it comes to textiles, laundering alone isn’t enough to keep infection causing pathogens from hitching a ride on clean linens, scrubs and gowns, then spreading to patients and staff.

 

Empower your infection prevention and antibiotic stewardship programs with SilvaClean’s easy, ongoing protection.

SilvaClean laundry additive infuses your linens with the antimicrobial power of silver, right in the rinse cycle. SilvaClean holds the first ever public health claim for a residual laundry additive to reduce post-laundry contamination.

7-10 of 100

hospitalized patients are infected by HAIs each year globally.

55%

of clean linens are contaminated before even coming into contact with patients.
