DRS TRAVELS TO CHICAGO TO INTRODUCE derma-glove®

TO THE JOINT COMMISSION.

The joint commission invites derma-glove® to present its innovative hand hygiene solution as the Center for Transforming Healthcare works to implement new measures in order to improve patient safety issues.

August 6, 2009 -- Atlanta, GA --On Wednesday, August 5, 2009, DRS's research and development team flew to Chicago to introduce one of the few products in the country, chosen among several, to be considered as an improvement to the Joint Commission's 46 step hand hygiene protocol. If approved by the Joint Commission, derma-glove® could potentially become a new step in the Joint Commission’s hand hygiene protocol for healthcare institutions. Hospitals would replace traditional alcohol-based hand sanitizers that protect against germs for less than 60 seconds, with the long-lasting capabilities of derma-glove®. derma-glove®  is a gel or spray hand sanitizer that provides a protective shield or “ invisible glove” on the skin using antimicrobial ingredients that bond to the skin to provide not only a 99.99% instant kill, but hours of protection against germs.

Three hospitals, in particular, have volunteered to run test trials of the product following their request for clinical laboratory studies done to develop the product thus far. Melody Dickerson of Wake Forest University Baptist Hospital stated that “It is encouraging that you have begun working to adapt your product already based on our feedback; I'll look forward to working with you further.” Jennifer Blaha of Cedars-Sinai Health System stated, “We are interested in its efficacy on different hospital acquired infections.”  As DRS continues to enhance derma-glove®, the team plans to continue working with both Wake Forest University Baptist Hospital and Cedars Sinai Health System, as well as The Johns Hopkins Hospital and Health System who has volunteered to run trials of derma-glove® in their simulation center following their review of DRS’s independent, third-party laboratory test results verifying that derma-glove® boasts a long-lasting kill against germs.

About DRS:

Decontamination and Restoration Service (DRS) is a natural extension of the wealth of knowledge and experience accumulated through the years of service by IDI, its parent company, from its facility services division.   However, with this extension came a new insight into the dangers of cross contamination through blood and air borne pathogens that can cause serious health issues and/or death if the proper protection and required steps are not taken when exposure occurs within an environment.

 

DRS's mission is to treat cross-contamination through meticulous cleaning techniques and procedures using our exclusive EPA registered and approved products, as this is the most effective method in preventing the spread of cross-contamination between environments.

Healthcare Protocols -- are they hurting more than helping?

When  derma glove was developed, we understood that hydration and skin recovery timelines were a major concern in the medical community. It was clear from our initial research that most HCW’s cannot wait 14-days to achieve hand health relief after the repetitious use of sanitizers and constant hand washing.
