As the healthcare field continues to embrace the technology of touchscreen devices to enhance patient care and make the work environment more efficient, various recent studies have revealed that computer monitors, laptops, tablets and other displays are spreading germs and harboring harmful bacteria. Since individuals use these types of devices throughout the average day, and many of them are shared by multiple doctors, nurses and other professionals, a build-up of fingerprints and contaminants is common. As a result, frequent cleaning is often necessary to prevent streaks, glare, and most importantly- the spread of germs.
NuShield Anti-Microbial Screen Protector Helps Prevent a Breeding Ground for Germs
Touchscreen devices are commonly used in hospitals, doctor’s offices, nursing homes and even EMT vehicles on a regular basis. While these devices provide a wealth of benefits for the healthcare world, they also offer an excellent breeding ground for germs. In fact, recent research has revealed that touch screens in operating rooms, emergency departments, and even isolation rooms are often heavily contaminated with organisms that put patients and medical staff at risk for developing dangerous infections and contagious disease. Although frequent, thorough cleanings with solvents and disinfectants is recommended to prevent the spread of germs, these procedures are rarely possible in the busy world of healthcare.
In an effort to provide protection from harmful contaminants, manufacturers of touchscreen devices used in healthcare settings are increasingly installing anti-microbial screen protectors. NuShield Triple A screen protectors inhibit the growth of microbial organisms to significantly reduce cross contamination and the spread of infectious disease. Recent tests that used Staphylococcus aureus and colon bacillus bacteria revealed that the innovative technology used by Triple A reduces these germs by an astounding 99%.
