HOW IT WORKS
Annual cost of hospital-related infections each year
Number of healthcare-associated infections/readmissions annually 1.7M
No more need to hunt down the alcohol wipes. ProtectiScope is readily accessible, and takes virtually no time to use.
We're redefining stethoscope hygiene to ensure that the stethoscope is one less infection risk every time a patient is seen.
Did You Know...
Stethoscopes have been investigated as areas of potential bacterial transmission since the 1970s. Studies have consistently found pathogenic bacteria that are commonly linked to hospital-acquired infections, such as C. Difficile and MRSA on the stethoscope.
When a clinician is running around seeing 2-3 patients each hour during a busy 12-hour shift, they don't always have time to clean their stethoscopes. ProtectiScope allows doctors and nurses to protect their stethoscope despite their fast-paced environment.
We know there are plenty of options when it comes to stethoscope hygiene. Which is why we're not only claiming to be convenient to use, but incredibly cost-effective compared to our competitors.
