Leading care home operator Avery Healthcare has introduced a new cleaning system to help in its fight against COVID-19.
The system is proven to kill 99.9% of viruses, including MRSA, e-Coli, norovirus and the SARS virus (which is similar to COV-2, which causes COVID-19).
An Avery spokesperson said: “Avery is always reviewing available technology to ensure that it leads the field in resident care, and is piloting a sanitisation system proven in other environments that is established to kill viruses and bacteria, fungus and mould. The system kills MRSA, MERS, e-Coli, norovirus, and SARS. We are also augmenting this pilot with additional independent laboratory testing within our own environments to evidence that they are effective in keeping them as clean and as safe as possible.
“As we’ve learned during this pandemic, we are all in this together. We want our residents, staff, and their respective families to know that when they are in an Avery care home, that it is one of the safest and cleanest places to be. We also want relatives to be confident that their loved ones are being cared for in the best possible way, and for anyone in the position of placing a loved one into care, to have the peace of mind that an Avery home will be a clean and safe haven.
“These systems will also aid the return of visiting again, so that we can welcome back families and friends to a safe and clean community.”
