Path-O-Wrap® Helps Prevent the Spread of Infectious Diseases

Path-O-Wrap is a laboratory tested – thin, clear polyethylene shield that adheres to the surface of hospital mattresses, ambulance gurney mattresses, and other devices to provide a sanitary surface barrier, thereby preventing patients, and healthcare professional’s exposure to harmful pathogens. When used in a proper infection control protocol, ASTM tested Path-O-Wrap sheets prevent the penetration of blood, bodily fluids, viruses, bacterium, and fungi to protected surfaces. This prevents the cross contamination process from occurring with the most commonly contacted patient transport and treatment surfaces.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates there were 722,000 HAIs in U.S acute care hospitals in 2011. About 75,000 hospital patients with HAIs died during their hospitalizations.1
