Computer keyboards are everywhere in healthcare facilities. Today, smarter prevention and control of hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) are the driving need for an infection-control keyboard: a new generation designed specifi cally for medical environments.
Typical healthcare keyboards have many users, so cross-contamination from and to patients can result in fatal consequences—particularly if transient bacteria such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) exist. Strong arguments for improved infection-control methodologies are evident where computer keyboards collect bacteria and require attention to maintain cleanliness.
Medigenic has developed a smart infection-control keyboard that helps monitor its own cleaning status to safeguard both patient and staff. The Medigenic® keyboard’s flat design quickly wipes clean with hospital-grade disinfectants. Healthcare professionals can swiftly document care with excellent tactile key response.
