Q: How do disposable curtains compare with the cost of using conventional curtains ?
A: The use of disposable curtains provide a cost effective solution:
- No curtain laundry costs
- No capital outlay for curtains
- No disruption of services during change of curtains
- Quick Availability
Q: How often do the curtains need to be changed ?
A: The curtains are durable and each organisation should carry out its own assessment to set the frequency at which the curtains should be changed in different areas. This can be easily incorporated into regular auditing processes and can form part of any existing infection control procedures. As per current CQC regulations, curtains should be visibly clean and must be cleaned or changed at least once every 6 months. Each curtain comes with a self audit label so that you can easily see when it was last changed.
Q: Do these curatins have an expiry date ?
A: No there is no expiry date for unused curtains. You can therefore keep them in stock for being ready for the next change or have some spare in case of accidental damge or soiling.
Q: Does the fabric support bacterial growth?
A: No, it doesn't. The non-woven polypropylene fabric of the curtains is incorported with Micoroban at the time of the manufacture of the fabric itself. This results in the Microban additive to be homogenously distributed through the entire fabric. Microban 3G Silver™ technology releases natural silver ions which lead to bacteria dying on contact with the uppermost surface. The silver ions link with the bacteria blocking cell metabolism, preventing cell division and reproduction with the result that the bacteria colony eventually disappears. Microban Protection begins to work as soon as the micro-organism come into contact with the product surface, where it then works continuously to maintain a consistently lower bio-burden than can be expected on a product without Microban protection.
Q: How should these curtains be disposed ?
A: Unsoiled Curtains can be disposed as recyclabe waste as they are made of polypropylene. Soiled curtains or where the risk assesment dictate (eg. use in Isolation rooms), these must be dispoed as per the clinical waste policy.
