patient room at the most highly touched surfaces can
cost around $4,000 per room. Relative to the return
on investment (ROI), the first HAI prevented will have
paid for outfitting multiple rooms in avoided costs to the
owner.
Silver and silver ions have been incorporated in a wide
array of products, ranging from solid-surface counters and shower stalls to coatings in bandages. Small
amounts of silver have been used in fabrics for cubicle
curtains, hospital scrubs, and bed linens. Silver is a proven antimicrobial. It's typically a more affordable heavy
metal option compared with copper, because a smaller
amount of content is effective.
There are concerns, however, that have been identified with some silver-based products that should be
carefully vetted. One concern is the potential for the silver, as an additive, to leach out of the fabric or in products when used as a coating. If leaching occurs, the longrange efficacy will diminish with each washing cycle,
which, in turn, can affect the environment.
ADVANCING THE CAUSE

A more recent breakthrough is an antimicrobial paint
that was introduced to the public in February 2016.
Paint is the most widely used finish for healthcare facility walls and is often used on trim, doors, and nonporous
hard ceilings. The new paint product, with an EPA registration, employs a quaternary ammonium compound as
its active ingredient and, according to lab tests, inhibits
growth of common microbes and has the power to kill
bacteria including staph, MRSA, and E. coli.
While not a common application in fixed lighting
within healthcare facilities, due to the potential impact
to humans, ultraviolet (UV) lighting is becoming a popular environmental services (EVS) weapon for the postoccupancy cleaning arsenals. There's a wide range of UV
lighting products that includes sanitizing robots; portable, handheld UV wand devices; fixed lights in trash
receptacles; and even fixed UV lighting to kill airborne
pathogens in supply air ducts.
Another innovative advancement for healthcare
waste management is the pneumatic tube soiled linen
and trash removal systems. This is a mechanized alternative to EVS staff pushing trash and linen carts to the
loading dock. These systems' contribution to reducing
infectious pathogens in healthcare facilities is multifold.
According to Tim Keenan, administrative director of
support services at St. Anthony Hospital (Lakewood,
Colo.), the pneumatic trash and soiled linen removal
system installed in the facility has shown an impressive
ROI with operational savings: approximately $5,000 per
month in lease/usage fees versus the cost of approximately 2.5 full-time equivalents (used to designate a
full-time employee's typical work week) per month.
The hospital will own this system after a 10-year lease
