To help its hospital partners combat HAIs, ARAMARK Healthcare announces it has collaborated with Ecolab to introduce OxyCide™ Daily Disinfectant Cleaner, an EPA-registered non-bleach cleaning agent in a concentrate that is gentle on surfaces but effective on germs such as Clostridium difficile.
“We work very hard to offer our hospital partners innovative solutions to support their infection prevention strategies,” says Mike Leone, president of ARAMARK Healthcare. “Leveraging our scale in collaboration with our suppliers to develop cleaning solutions such as OxyCide, is one of the ways we are able to add value to hospitals through our environmental service programs.”
OxyCide is an EPA-registered disinfectant, virucide, sporicide, deodorizer and one-step cleaner. ARAMARK Healthcare worked with Ecolab to test and develop the product for daily hospital use. OxyCide kills Clostridium difficile in 3 minutes and other organisms in 5 minutes or less; yet has superior material compatibility compared to bleach-based cleaners on hospital surfaces such as diagnostic equipment, stainless steel and fabrics.
ARAMARK Healthcare is using OxyCide as its recommended daily disinfectant, pairing it with its processes and hospital cleaning technologies to enhance its environmental service programs and deliver better patient outcomes.
