We have made a significant investment in our infection control and decontamination centre. All areas are segregated throughout the process to prevent cross contamination with separated dirty and clean entrances and areas. PRESSURE RELIEVING DECONTAMINATION AND SERVICING:
Service & Repair Process:
TRANSPORT iQ Medical's own liveried vehicles will collect and return all mattresses to our customers. Our vehicles have been modified to have two totally separate sections, one at the front of the van for clean assets and a sealed section at the rear of the van for soiled/dirty assets to ensure there is no cross contamination during the transportation process, the vans are lined with washable, antibacterial products to further prevent any possible spread of infection.
DIRTY HOLDING AREA On arrival all at our depot all mattresses will be placed in a cage and must enter the dirty holding area via the rear door.
DECONTAMINATION All our customers' mattress systems are currently cleaned and decontaminated by thermal disinfection of the covers and manual cleaning and decontamination of mattress internals in line with our operating procedures, the HSG (95) 18 guidelines and BHTA guidelines.
WASHING Our commercial washing machines provide decontamination of mattress covers. Covers are laundered on a thermal disinfection cycle at 75o as per the HSG (95) 18 requirement. Our washing machines have the correct and specified programming ability to meet the HSG (95) 18 standard and are under a regular servicing and breakdown contract with JLA ltd in order to maintain optimum operating conditions.
