Franklin, MA, June 5, 2020 – Jaco Inc., manufacturer of mobile and wall-mounted computer workstations for point-of-care applications, announced a new Infection Control Resource Center on the company’ recently redesigned web site (jacoinc.com).
The Jaco Infection Control Resource Center provides information about healthcare associated infections (HAIs) in hospitals, particularly as they relate to the use, disinfection and sterilization of EHR carts and wall-mounted workstations. Highlights include:
- The latest data on HAI prevalence in acute care hospitals
- Best practice guidelines for disinfecting and sterilizing Jaco EHR workstations
- Links to information about HAI prevention in general, and as it relates to COVID-19 in particular.
Visitors can also download Jaco’s white paper, UV Sterilization, HAIs, and Your EHR Carts, which outlines the benefits of UV (ultraviolet) sterilization and its potential impact on materials used in EHR cart construction. While even short-term exposure to UV radiation can be damaging to plastics, all Jaco mobile and wall-mounted EHR workstations – including Jaco’s groundbreaking EVO cart – are built from metal, with a high-gloss antimicrobial powder coat that’s exceptionally easy to clean and withstands a lifetime of UV sterilization without impact to the surface finish.
“Infection control is always top-of-mind for us and for our customers, but never more than in recent months,” said Matt Rossini, Jaco Vice President of Marketing. “We’re seeing all kinds of new information and resources emerge – everything from studies of COVID-19 treatment areas, to expanded adoption of UV robots for cleaning patient rooms and medical devices. We see real value in sharing this information and starting an ongoing conversation with customers about infection control and how it impacts nurses and patients at the point of care.”
