Doctors, nurses and reception staff are all at risk due to the constant stream of patients carrying infections of various kinds.

Surgery waiting rooms are inevitably populated by above average levels of harmful bacteria's and viruses both airborne and on surfaces. This not only gives rise to a high level of cross infection amongst patients but also the health of staff members is frequently affected resulting in a high rate of absence. Serious disruption to the practice and a high cost burden are incurred as a consequence, especially in winter months. In the surgery itself, medical practitioners are repeatedly coming into close contact with infected patients.

DENTAL PRACTICES share the same problem although the patients in this case carry no greater level of infection than the general public as a whole. However, by the very nature of the work, dentists and surgery staff are intimately exposed to infection. The same applies to veterinary practice staff.

To have any realistic chance of combating these effects, a comprehensive sanitising regime is required that can deliver periodic deep sterilisation backed up by surface active and long lasting biocidal cleansing and continuous air sanitisation.

Associated Applications: Health centres, doctors surgeries, dental practices, retail pharmacies and Veterinary surgeries.

The Service

Following a detailed survey of the premises Viroklenz will provide a written proposal for a comprehensive infection protection service.

The Viroklenz regime is generally applied in a three pronged attack, namely:

  • Initial deep sterilisation of the entire premises by bio-fogging.
  • Ongoing maintenance of sterility on surfaces and floors using the Viroklenz dual biocidal cleansers.
  • Continuous sanitisation of the atmosphere by recirculation of air through strategically placed Viroklenz patented air sanitising machines.

The Viroklenz air sanitising machines operate at various ratings to match differing room sizes. Typically in a medical practice, our larger machines would be installed in the general waiting room and our medium machines in the surgery itself. Smaller, battery operated versions are available to be deployed in treatment rooms and WC's.

Viroklenz technicians install these machines in silent hours thus avoiding any disruption to your operation.

At the time of installation, Viroklenz technicians provide full training to your staff in the use of the Viroklenz dual biocidal cleansers. This does not impose any more work on your employees or contractors. It is simply replacement of your existing cleaning routine with the Viroklenz regime. The biocidal cleansers are supplied in convenient ready to use trigger sprays for surface cleaning and in dispenser bottles for floor swabbing where this is appropriate. The biocides are in two distinct types and are used in rotation. For example in a busy surgery operating five days per week, we recommend use of our QA cleanser for 4 days, followed by our CD cleanser on the fifth day. This rotation is to help prevent the build up of immunity in organisms. It is a simple rule for your cleaning staff to follow.

Bio-fogging is a well proven and perfectly safe technique. It reaches all corners of your premises, even the most inaccessible. It is particularly effective in sterilising soft surfaces including carpets, cushions and upholstery.

In summary the Viroklenz service includes:

  • Initial deep sterilisation of the premises by bio-fogging
  • Installation of appropriate Viroklenz air sanitisers
  • Initial supply of biocidal cleansers sufficient for 1 month
  • Training of your cleaning staff

Thereafter, at monthly intervals our technicians attend to re-fog the entire premises, replace the active elements in our air sanitisers and provide a further supply of biocidal cleansers to top up to the original 1 month supply level.

Record keeping is an important means of demonstrating that a systematic sanitisation regime is in place. We provide a bound record book which is signed by our visiting technician and countersigned by your manager at each monthly visit.

COMPLETE PEACE OF MIND - Remember that, as a Viroklenz customer, in the unlikely event of a serious outbreak of infection, the Viroklenz technicians will attend on an emergency basis to quell the outbreak. This emergency provision is at no additional cost but is free within your service package.
