The Challenge:

Hospital privacy curtains are frequently and rapidly contaminated with pathogenic bacteria.(1) 42% of privacy curtains were contaminated with vancomycin-resistant enterococci, 22% with MRSA and 4% with C. diff.(2) all known to cause preventable Hospital Associated Infections (pHAI’s)

A study published September 2018 concludes: …patient privacy curtains became progressively contaminated with bacteria, including MRSA. Curtains should either be cleaned or replaced 10 to 14 days after being hung.(3)
