Gowns including surgeon gowns, isolation gowns and labcoats are worn during surgeries, examination and in labs to prevent surgeons from blood secretions, body fluids, and microbes. However, pathogenic microbes can contaminate gowns and can reside on them for longer time periods. Contaminated gowns can spread deadly infections i.e., HAIs to patients, surgeons and other personnel and become a health hazard for a patient whose health is already at stake.

Hospital environment is highly contaminated with viruses, bacteria, and microorganisms which are present in the air, on frequently touched surfaces, and on the skin and clothing of patients. These microbes can reside on the surfaces for a longer time & act as a permanent reservoir for microbial buildup and spread. Disposable gloves worn by healthcare workers and doctors to prevent cross-contamination while examining the patients and to avoid direct contact with secretions & body fluids. In a hospital, environment cross-contamination can also be spread by touching contaminated surfaces including tabletops, door knobs, etc. Pathogenic microbes can be spread to doctors and healthcare workers while examining patients. These pathogenic microbes can reside on gloves and can be transmitted to other patients and workers. In a recent study, hands and gloves of 70% of healthcare professionals confirmed contamination with Vancomycin-Resistant Enterococci (VRE).
Generally, gloves are worn by the workers to avoid cross-contamination but these gloves can harbor microbes for a longer time period and cause cross-contamination to the product and to the workers and cause the spread of infections.
Protector® Antimicrobial Latex Examination Gloves provide complete protection against Bacteria, Fungi, Algae, Mould, Mildew, and Yeast. It kills the microorganisms upon contact with the gloves thus reducing the risk of transmission of microbes and preventing the spread of infections.
Protector® Antimicrobial Examination Gloves are tested by ISO 17025 certified labs and antimicrobial efficacy has proven 99.99% against bacteria and microorganisms in accordance with ISO 22196 and ASTM E 2180. Protector® Gloves are also effective against viruses including Coronavirus.
Caps are used by healthcare workers, visitors, and patients to avoid hair fall and the spread of infectious microbes associated with hair. In a highly contaminated environment, caps can be contaminated by indoor microflora and can serve as a source of infection spread.
Protector® Antiviral & Antimicrobial Caps provide complete protection against Viruses, Bacteria, and other microbes. It kills the microorganisms upon contact with the caps thus reducing the risk of transmission of microbes and preventing the spread of infections.
Protector® Caps are tested by ISO 17025 certified third-party labs and have proven 99.99% antiviral & antimicrobial efficacy in accordance with ISO 18184, ISO 22196, ISO 20743, and ISO 13629.
Interior of the hospital is mostly the inhabitant of the microbes and germs especially floors as it is the most touchable object of hospital interior due to the number of visitor, health care worker and patients. There is the possibility of spreading viruses and bacteria through it. Microbial growth can be difficult to remove even with the use of highly concentrated disinfectants and antibiotics. Shoe covers in hospitals are worn by visitors and workers to prevent cross-contamination but these can spread pathogenic microbes and increase the risk of HAIs.
Visitors and workers coming from the outside or from one department to another can introduce microbes in a certain workplace through their feet. Thus, shoe covers are worn to minimize the risk of cross-contamination. Conventional shoe covers can’t provide maximum protection against cross-contamination and microbial spread thus the risk of microbial spread remains there. Protector® Antimicrobial Shoe Covers provide complete protection against Viruses, Bacteria, Fungi, Algae, Mould, Mildew & Yeast. It kills the microorganisms upon contact with the shoe covers thus reducing the risk of transmission of microbes and preventing the spread of infections.
Protector® Antimicrobial Shoe Covers are tested by ISO 17025 certified third-party labs and antimicrobial efficacy has proven 99.99% against bacteria, fungi and other microbes in accordance with ISO 22196, ISO 20743, and ISO 13629. These are also compliant with FDA.
Bedcovers & Pillow Covers
Patients’ bed covers and pillow covers are among the items which come in direct contact with patients and are contaminated by the microflora of patients. Bed covers are also contaminated by the patient’s secretions, body fluids, and blood. Bedcovers are further contaminated during talking, sneezing, and coughing & indoor microbes are present in the air and on surfaces. Ideally, bedcovers are changed once a day so microbes get plenty of time to grow and spread. Bedcovers are highly touched surfaces and serve as a source of cross-contamination & microbial spread to healthcare workers & visitors, even after sterilization and the use of disinfectant.
According to the American Journal of Infection Control (IC), if the patient occupying bed before was on antibiotics, the next patient of getting C.difficile infection goes up by 22%, while Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC) findings indicated 38% times patients’ bed pillows are contaminated by more than three different types of virulent microorganisms (Klebsiella, Pseudomonas, and Clostridium).
Protector® Antimicrobial Bed Covers & Pillow Covers provide complete protection against Bacteria, Fungi, Algae, Mould, Mildew & Yeast and reduce the cost of sterilization and disinfectant.

Hospital Waste Bags & Bins
Waste produced in hospitals contains a high number of infectious microbes and acts as a source of cross-contamination in the process of waste collection, handling, storage, transportation, and disposal. During collection to disposal, hospital waste can transmit infections to handlers and cross-contamination can also occur at each level.
