UMF Corporation debuts privacy curtain add-on - McKnight's Long-Term Care News

UMF Corporation has introduced the C-PULL for healthcare privacy curtains, the first product in the company’s Micrillon® line.

C-Pull includes a hard surface target for caregivers that offers virus protection. It’s designed for reusable and disposable curtains and eliminates hand-to-curtain contamination.

Phoenix Textile Corporation has added C-PULL to its portfolio of healthcare solutions. As a product offers antimicrobial product protection against bacteria, fungi and viruses, it is considered ideal for nursing homes.

“Our team of CLLM-certified sales professionals is very excited about the addition of C-PULL to our portfolio of design solutions for healthcare,” said Phoenix Textile Corporation President Linda Haberstroh. “It turns the privacy curtain, a soft surface, into a cleanable hard surface without impacting the design esthetic of the room.”

A recent study published in the American Journal of Infection Control indicated that 42% of privacy curtains were contaminated with vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE), 22% with methicillin-resistant S aureus (MRSA) and 4% with clostridium difficile (C. diff).
