Why to Choose Both Anti-Microbial and Ethanol Safe Housing in Healthcare Environments

When it comes to our current habitat under COVID-19, many of us are running around panicking with a bottle of hand sanitiser, just trying to avoid any interaction with germs. According to the CDC, current evidence finds suggests that COVID-19 related germs may remain viable for hours to days on surfaces made from a variety of materials. The cleaning of visibly dirty surfaces followed by the disinfection of the space is the best measure for preventing COVID-10 and any other respiratory illnesses, in both households and community settings.

Many of those who are still working onsite could benefit on knowing and learning the guidelines for how to properly disinfect their hardware devices, so in not to spread the virus. Unitech has already jumped on educating partners on how to just that, while also introducing a few beneficial solutions for combating the issues brought on by COVID-19. Their full list of instructions, per device, can be found here.

  • Hydrogen Peroxide
  • Ammonium Chloride
  • Ammonia Solutions
  • Acetone

In these healthcare environments disinfecting is one thing, but many healthcare staff and faculty are taking the proper precautions to protect themselves, their patients, and co-workers with specific hardware devices. Hospitals and outpatient centers are utilising their employees to check and report the temperatures of incoming guests/patients as they walk through the door. Typically, anyone with a 37-degree temperature or higher is immediately isolated from the rest or sent home to quarantine within the comfort and safety of their home, to keep away from those high-risk individuals already in hospital beds.
