PDI is a leading healthcare solutions company that supplies hospitals globally with its suite of trusted products. This US-based company has partnered with Microban® International to provide an innovative continuously active disinfectant that helps to keep surfaces cleaner for longer and enhances already stringent cleanliness protocols. Sabrina Samson, Director of Marketing Communications at PDI, explains why they established this important partnership.
The Company: PDI
PDI is a healthcare solutions company with over 40 years of dedicated industry experience. The company is divided into three sectors – PDI Healthcare, Sani Professional® and PDI Contract Manufacturing – with each brand providing market-leading evidence-based solutions. PDI Healthcare offers a range of products tried and tested in hospitals in the USA and worldwide, covering patient care, surface sanitization and UVC disinfection.
Bolstering the company’s extensive portfolio is its commitment to supporting product implementation, staff engagement and education. This comprehensive approach has made PDI a trusted name which continues to grow, with ongoing efforts to preserve the well-being of the facilities, clinicians and patients touched by its products.
The Challenge: Unrealistic Cleaning Protocols
Sanitization and disinfection in hospitals is a full-time job but, during these unprecedented times, staff have been put under immense pressure to sustain cleanliness protocols. This makes it imperative to support the hardworking hospital teams during this pandemic and into the future. However, it is humanly impossible to clean every surface, every piece of hospital equipment, and every waiting room 24/7. There is neither the staff nor the budget for such detail. Nurses and environmental services staff work tirelessly to comply with the strict protocols in place, but high-traffic areas especially require extra attention. And, with waiting rooms and hallways full of high-touch surfaces, hospital staff need help.
Solution: A committed healthcare partnership
Microban recognized these challenges and approached PDI to pivot on the company’s trusted place in healthcare. A partnership was formed and remains committed to strengthening cleanliness protocols in hospitals and healthcare facilities. Sani-24® Germicidal Spray powered by Microban technology is a product of this partnership. When applied to a surface, Sani-24 offers powerful 24-hour surface protection utilizing continuously active disinfection technology which supplements regular cleaning schedules.
Sabrina explained: “The sweet spot that we’ve managed to find is that this product gives you an added layer of protection. If an environmental services staff member or a nurse goes in and misses a spot, you still have protection in that area for 24 hours or 96 touches. This spray offsets some of that human error that will always be there. Sani-24 also helps to protect the gaps in-between cleans, which I think is a big differentiator and comes as a sense of relief for hospital management.”
A helping hand
Continuously active disinfection technology from Microban offers that extra hand to hospitals when it is most needed; an undercover agent that protects the abundant range of surfaces found in hospitals. Sabrina continued: “Think about the surfaces in high-traffic areas, such as waiting rooms. There are cleanliness protocols in place within a facility, but staff aren’t necessarily going to clean a surface every time it has been touched. Sani-24 really provides that added protection for those high-touch, high-traffic areas.”
