Take charge of infection control and help protect your patients against Healthcare Associated Infections.
See what experienced team at The BioSecurity Company in Baltimore can do for you.
Bacteria are mutating faster than cures can be made. Emphasis must also be on prevention. Hospitals are infested with bacteria and viruses. We recently started manufacturing patient gowns as well as scrubs and soon we will have bed sheets and pillow cases to meet the demands of the hospitality market - hotels, motels, cruise ships etc. Our sheets and pillow case have an added benefit - odor control.
The current costs for just prevention are estimated at $68 Billion per year and the methods that are currently being used won’t stop these infections. We are proposing to either take over your infection control or work with them to both bring down the infections in your facility. Let us show you how we can get back the monies that you lose from Medicare by bringing down your infection rates, increasing protection for your patients and staff.
The medical term for a hospital-acquired infection is nosocomial. Most nosocomial infections are due to bacteria. Since antibiotics are frequently used within hospitals, the types of bacteria and their resistance to antibiotics is different than bacteria outside of the hospital.
Hospital VBP rewards acute care hospitals with incentive payments for the quality of care they give to people, not just the quantity of services they provide. Congress authorized the Inpatient Hospital VBP in Section 3001(a) of the Affordable Care Act.
Our prevention methods and products, will save in maintenance costs as well as the costs the hospital incurs from Healthcare Associated Infections (HAI)

HAI is the number 1 killer in the USA today – more than auto accidents and violence combined. Over 100,000+ people die each YEAR from contracting in the hospital. Another 380,000+ from long term nursing homes also. Verify at the CDC.gov web site. A recent study published online in the American Journal of Infection Control has characterized risk factors for development of active methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection among patients who are colonized with the bacteria at hospital admission.

Estimating the burden of healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) compared to other communicable diseases is an ongoing challenge given the need for good quality data on the incidence of these infections and the involved comorbidities.The included HAIs were healthcare-associated pneumonia (HAP), healthcare-associated urinary tract infection (HA UTI), surgical site infection (SSI), healthcare-associated Clostridium difficile infection (HA CDI), healthcare-associated neonatal sepsis, and healthcareassociated primary bloodstream infection (HA primary BSI). (2)
MRSA is a significant pathogen worldwide, and an important cause of healthcare–associated infections (HAIs), ranging from minor skin and soft tissue infections to severe osteomyelitis and sepsis. Yet, despite recent advances in HAI prevention, MRSA continues to cause significant morbidity, mortality, and economic costs in the United States. (3)
We live in this microbial soup, and a big ingredient is our own microorganisms,” said Jordan Peccia, associate professor of environmental engineering at Yale and the principal investigator of a study recently published online in the Journal Indoor Air.
Our garments are treated during manufacturing with a special antimicrobial that helps prevent HAI and lasts up to 100 washings.While wearing our garments, you will have additional protection from bacteria and viruses.
Accordine to Mike Zimmer of "Science Happens", an estimated 700,000 people die each year from antibiotic-resistant bacteria, and within a few decades, that toll may rise to to several million.
