Clean Patch


Published on

CLEANPatch is a first-in-class medical surface repair patch for hospital beds and stretchers that restores damaged mattresses to an intact and hygienic state. Inspired by a nurse and her story, CleanPatch is a cost-effective tool to enhance patient safety.

Clinically Tested - Tested and confirmed by Infection Control Professionals in a healthcare setting:

• Durable: CLEANPatch remained fully adhered to mattresses for over one year in a real hospital setting (n=72)
• Cleanable: CLEANPatch can be effectively cleaned by hospital disinfectants used during routine and terminal cleaning.
• Equal: CLEANPatch did not harbour any more organisms than the mattress it was placed on before and after cleaning.

Cost-savings - Extends the life of mattresses and stretchers reducing direct and indirect cost:
• Annual savings: CLEANPatch is 1/20th the cost of a new standard hospital mattress.
• Keeping beds in service: CLEANPatch is an immediate repair option to minimize downtime and associated costs.
• Patient Safety: CLEANPatch is a cost-effective tool to proactively address damaged and unhygienic surfaces.

Safe and simple - Designed and proven with healthcare stakeholders.
• Biocompatible: CLEANPatch is made from medical-grade, Latex-free materials and shown to be non-cytotoxic
• Easy to apply: CLEANPatch is designed to be applied in seconds by Housekeeping, Facilities Management or Nursing.

  20. 20. Testimonial • Over 70 healthcare facilities in North America are purchasing CleanPatch in the last few months! "Many studies have shown that healthcare equipment (e.g. mattresses, positioning pillows, stretchers, wheelchairs, high walkers) that are shared between patients/residents/clients with rips and tears have resulted in disposal as they cannot be cleaned nor disinfected properly. We hope to save some money by using CleanPatch to repair this communal equipment and also provide a safe environment for our patients. Our facility has been using CleanPatch for the past eight months and the feedback from our end users is positive, specifically the product's easy application and durability. We have been using CleanPatch on our stretchers located in the busy Emergency Department and it has been able to withstand multiple cleaning and disinfection“ Manager, Infection Prevention and Control in Canada 1000+ bed facility in Toronto, Ontario Infection Control and User references available upon request 2014 © Surface Medical Inc.
