Assisted Care and Nursing Homes

Assisted care and nursing homes need to be diligent about preventing and controlling the outbreak of infectious illness.

With care staff and residents spending considerable amounts of time together, often indoors in close quarters, infections can quickly spread. The outbreak of an infectious illness in a nursing home or assisted care facility that is permanently populated with residents can be a huge challenge to get under control and can prove fatal.

A robust infection prevention and control policy, including regular total environment disinfection, should be a vital part of any facility’s site management protocol. It is especially critical now during the Coronavirus pandemic.

At Sanondaf we understand the various infection risks relevant to the aged population, as well as the staff that keep the site safe and functioning well for the residents, and we know how to overcome these risks.

Unlike traditional spray and wipe disinfection methods, our treatments can be applied to all surfaces, including electrical equipment and stainless steel (zero risk of corrosion) soft furnishings and fabrics and food preparation and eating surfaces. 

Importantly for elderly residents who often have frail skin, our treatment leaves no chemical residue. After treatment the solution decomposes to oxygen and water.

Our hydrogen peroxide vapour treatments are independently tested and approved to eradicate over 280 pathogens including:

  • Coronavirus
  • Noravirus
  • Clostridium Difficile (C-diff)
  • Tuberculosis Mycobacterium
  • MRSA
  • H1N1 / H5N1 (Flu viruses)
  • Escherichia coli (E-coli)
  • Salmonella
  • and many other types of microorganisms.

With a typical response time to site of 4-6 hours from call-out, our service is ideal for emergencies or when an unexpected decontamination is required. Taking a more preventative approach, our services can be booked for a weekly, monthly or quarterly treatment.
