Re: “OxyCide is supposed to make hospitals cleaner and safer for patients, but what about the staff that has to use it?

Dave,

Silver-based, yes. Nano-silver (the "bad" silver), no. EPA says it kills 99.9999% of germs, and I'm not aware of any test that has shown otherwise. When you consider the cost and consequences of a superbug outbreak -- or making healthcare workers sick -- the cost doesn't seem so prohibitive. Like most new technologies, it is more expensive than established products, but the price will come down as more is sold.

It's no longer necessary to use toxic chemicals to kill bacteria in hospitals. Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital used STERIPLEX SD to decontaminate after its exposure to Ebola. It's non-toxic --EPA says no warning language or first aid instructions are required on its label -- and it's 99.9999 percent effective in killing superbugs. You can find the EPA registration at steriplex.com. Sorry to sound like an advertisement, but if it keeps healthcare workers from getting sick, it's something you might want to know about.
