Cordgienic offers a hygienic, anti-bacterial alternative to traditional nylon pull cords that represents a major step forward in infection control. Cordgienic is plastic coated making it easy to clean and less prone to breakage. What's more, the plastic coating itself offers inherent anti-bacterial properties to further reduce infection risks.
Cordgienic costs around the same as traditional nylon cord, yet it continues to protect patients and prevent infections month after month, without the regular replacement required for contaminated nylon cords. Healthcare acquired infections (HCAI) are one of the biggest concerns for hospitals, health centres and care homes across the UK. So called 'superbugs', such as MRSA and C.Diff, along with a huge range of other infections like Acineobacter and Noravirus, infect around 1 in 10 hospital patients, causing as many as 5,000 deaths a year and playing a role in a further 15,000. Yet with so many touch points within the healthcare environment, controlling these infections is a constant battle. One major source of infection is the nylon pull cords used for lights and emergency nurse calls. Absorbent and hard to clean, they form an ideal breeding ground for bugs.
That's why Sleeve-It created Cordgienic - the easy clean, anti-bacterial pull cord that offers unrivalled protection for patients.
