Case Studies

Surface disinfection incompatibility with medical devices creates potential patient risks.

A large midwestern hospital, with approximately 700 licensed beds and over 1.2 million patient encounters yearly, purchased several hundred state-of-the-art, non-invasive medical device monitoring systems. Within two years, there was visible damage to the monitoring systems, due to chemical exposure during the disinfection process.

Surface disinfectant compatibility is not a new issue to the healthcare industry. The goal of this case study is to find the problem’s root causes through deep dive real-world analysis.
