CoreShieldz™ - The Disposable Protective Stethoscope Barrier
Disinfecting with Alcohol is Not Ideal
Stethoscopes carry dangerous microorganisms from patient to patient. Infectious organisms have been found on virtually all stethoscopes after just one patient exam, and MRSA was detected on 70% of stethoscopes. However, alcohol is not the ideal disinfectant. Uneven surfaces cause alcohol wipes to be less effective than originally thought. After cleaning with alcohol or bleach, many microorganisms remain.
The Solution ... CoreShieldz™
Just as disposable gloves are standard protocol to prevent the spread of contaminants via the hand, CoreShieldz™ is quickly becoming the standard for eliminating the spread of microorganisms via the stethoscope. CoreShieldz™ is an affordable, easy-to-apply film cover that succeeds where alcohol wiping and other disinfecting protocols have come up short. It provides superior care and protection and effortlessly fits within workflow and infection prevention protocols. CoreShieldz™ has low cost per use and an innovative dispenser that takes up little space on wall, counter, or cart in which usage is easily monitored and tracked. Available in Standard and Small sizes to fit all stethoscopes.
