Mattresses are used in all care facilities and need cleaning regularly. Due to the nature of the environments, they are in, they pose an increased risk of infection to both service users and staff.
Pressure care mattresses are used by some of the most vulnerable service users, so it is crucial to follow strict cleaning and decontamination processes to decrease the risk of cross-contamination between users and the devastating consequences that come with it.
As well as regular mattress cleaning within the home, you should also have a mattress decontamination schedule to ensure that it is safe and hygienic to use between service users.
Medaco not only provides mattress decontamination but also inspection and repair, so your mattress systems remain functional whilst maximising their lifespan.
