Part of the Gainsborough Healthcare Group, Gainsborough Specialist Bathing will be demonstrating its world-leading assisted baths with BioCote antimicrobial protection at Health Plus Care.
Health Plus Care, Care Home Live feature and stand D60, 27-28 June 2018, ExCeL, London.
Gainsborough is regarded as the care bath innovator with operationally efficient solutions and holistic service support. Its advanced baths, such as the Gentona with hi-lo functionality and bather transfer system, are proven to deliver utmost care and performance in today’s challenging care environment. This unsurpassed reputation has just been enhanced with the introduction of antimicrobial BioCote in all Gainsborough manufactured baths – a first for the UK specialist bathing market. This protection increases bather and carer well-being by reducing the risk of cross infection and illness – ensuring CQC hygiene targets are met or even exceeded.
BioCote provides 99.99% protection against Influenza H1N1, E.coli, Salmonella and antibiotic resistant CRO, CRE, VRE and MRSA. Through 20 years of development BioCote is a proven worldwide choice hence Gainsborough partners with this specialist to deliver a dependent solution. With BioCote technology integrated during the manufacturing process microbes cannot survive or breed on bathing surfaces so vulnerable service users are protected 24/7. It is effective for the lifetime of the product and cannot be washed off or worn away – delivering continual reassurance for bathers and care providers without the need for time-intensive deep cleaning.
Many care homes, acute wards and healthcare groups are recognising the significant benefit BioCote presents as Luke Torkington, Procurement Buyer, Four Seasons Health Care comments: “BioCote is vital for our care homes’ infection control process. With the increased threat from superbugs, the inclusion of BioCote technology delivers our carers and residents a significant advantage. No other premium supplier can deliver such a robust infection control solution.”
Peter Eckhardt, CEO, Gainsborough Healthcare Group adds: “Gainsborough continues to take the lead in care innovation with the introduction of BioCote. We are excited to be showcasing this development at Health Plus Care as it can significantly reduce the threat of CROs and CREs which is a current challenge in many care environments.”
