Infection Control is now more important than ever.

Infection control in healthcare facilities in the time of COVID-19 is a crucial element of patient safety. Decision makers in hospitals, hospital dialysis centers, and other healthcare facilities are finding themselves at the intersection of patient safety and cost when it comes to evaluating the best infection control devices to protect staff and patients. While technology can help improve patient care, hardware can be involved in the transmission of infection between staff and patients. Computer hardware, especially keyboards, can be contaminated when touched by users’ hands. Not only do25% of hospital keyboards tested positive for the deadly super bug MRSA, these high-touch surfaces must be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected to lower the viral load of Coronavirus. In a study conducted by the National Institutes of Health and the Centers for Disease Control, additional dangerous pathogens were found on high touch surfaces such as keyboards.
