Infection Control For Mattress Covers

 

Mattress covers can be damaged at any time which can allow body or other fluids to contaminate the inner mattress core. This can result in the potential source of contamination. The MHRA released a safety poster to help raise awareness of damaged mattress covers and associated interior mattress contamination.

“We have purchased 3 Therawave systems from Mayflower and found them to be an excellent product from an excellent company. My unit has 28 highly dependent nursing and palliative care residents who need a high level of pressure relief. The mattresses themselves are high quality. The pumps are easy to use and quiet and the covers are high quality and comfortable. One resident was admitted with 4 pressure ulcers and now 3 have healed and the 4th is healing well. I highly recommend Mayflower as a company and their pressure releiving products.”
