Concerned with the 2017 CMS Legionella related Memorandum?
“Ref: S&C 17-30-Hospitals/CAHs/NHs” – Requirement to Reduce Legionella Risk in Healthcare Facility Water Systems to Prevent Cases and Outbreaks of Legionnaires’ Disease (LD)?
Copper Silver Ionization solutions for nursing homes by CSIDefender® are easy to implement, reliable and affordable solutions. They provide Legionella prevention peace of mind for Nursing Home owners, occupants, employees, and visitors while helping comply with Ref: S&C 17-30-Hospitals/CAHs/NHs.
Protect your residents from infection with CSIDefender® Legionella pneumophilia prevention solutions. The elderly population is at a far greater risk of contracting and succumbing to legionella, meaning nursing homes and other residential care facilities, such as long-term care and assisted living, must effectively prevent the spread and growth of this bacteria. A proactive, affordable and discreet approach that uses secondary water treatment, such as copper silver ionization (CSI), is the only way to fully protect your patients and help comply with ASHRAE 188 Legionella Prevention Standards when secondary facility water disinfection is recommended.
According to the CDC, 80 percent of legionella outbreaks in healthcare facilities were associated with long-term care facilities such as nursing homes. Water distribution systems and storage tanks leading to showers, sinks, bathtubs and medical equipment are all potential sources of bacteria growth.
CSIDefender® Copper Silver Ionization solution generates clinically proven and field tested positively charged copper (Cu+2) and silver (Ag+) ions to prevent legionella bacteria growth and saturate the biofilm where it grows. This approach dramatically reduces the risk of nosocomial acquired infections associated with Legionella by vulnerable residents and provides a safer facility environment to all occupants.
CSIDefender® copper silver ionization solutions have been trusted by engineers and consultants in nursing homes for more than 20 years. Built with quality materials, manufactured in North America, and backed by a 10 year limited warranty, CSIDefender® provides a safe, reliable and cost-effective legionella prevention solution to protect vulnerable residents from infection before it occurs.
