With the onset of COVID-19, personal protective equipment (PPE) is in short supply around the globe. First responders and frontline healthcare workers must have steady access to the tools they need to keep all of us safe. Many sectors are adopting the use of N95 respirator masks for the first time, creating further demand. Additionally, organizations across the country are adopting new sanitization practices. They are continually challenged to find ways to keep their staff and customers safe, to prevent contamination, and to quickly recover from business interruption if a positive case occurs.
SteriRight’s hospital-grade N95 respirator mask sanitization service:
- reduces procurement pressure
- reduces costs
- reduces single-use waste
State-of-the-art technology like SteriRight’s electrostatic disinfection service provides organizations in every sector a way to:
- recover quickly from business interruption
- meet ongoing demands for preventative disinfection
SteriRight’s solutions for extending critical PPE lifespan and managing preventative sanitizing standards came about as a response to complex, escalating needs in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. They’re backed by a team of healthcare and life science technology industry experts at Bay Area Health Trust. The resulting technologies include several benefits to clients and communities.
Benefits of Mask Reprocessing include the following:
- Reprocessing N95 respirator masks relieves pressure on supply chains and allows organizations to build a safety net of PPE supply. Masks can be returned to the original user.
- After sanitization, masks can be returned immediately or stored at SteriRight’s facility for future use.
- It is cost-efficient. Masks can be reprocessed up to ten times, reducing costs associated with obtaining new masks.
- It is environmentally friendly. Mask reprocessing and reuse is more sustainable and reduces waste.
- Both mobile on-site and ship-to service options are available and provide a fast turnaround. On-site masks can be reprocessed, safely repackaged, and returned within a couple of hours, depending on batch size.
- Health Canada issued authorization for this process through an interim order.
- It complies with Ontario Health’s recommendations for Optimizing the Supply of Personal Protective Equipment During the COVID-19 Pandemic, which states, “In the context of depleted supplies of PPE during a pandemic, using validated sterilization and disinfection methods to decontaminate PPE for future use should be considered in your crisis plans in settings where it can be safely done.”
