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.

“Having just purchased our 2nd Therawave 8 mattress from you I wish to give you feedback on the superiority of this product and the success we have acheived using it. A patient we nurse had a severe Grade 4 ulcer on the sacral area, completely bed bound, quadraplegic, and for medical reasons unable to be nursed on his side. This sore with the use of dressings and your mattress healed completely within a few months, a great feat given the severity of the sore. Having two out of the three cells inflated at a time gives much better support and stability especially to some of the more sturdy residents. I would not hesitate in recommending this product and would purchase for the home in the future.”
