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.
