• Reducing the risk of cross infection by the reduction of micro-organisms between client use
• Maintaining the safety and integrity of pressure relieving products
Our upgraded decontamination facilities at our Warwickshire site have vastly reduced the total turnaround time for the decontamination/function check process and we have been able to reduce the wash cycle time from 1.5 hours to 45 minutes with the introduction of the new OTEX wash system and reduce the drying time for 2 days to 4/5 hours with the introduction of our bespoke drying rack and drying room system.
This guarantees our customers a quicker turnaround time but still to the same high standards set by the Department of Health Guidelines. We are approved contractors to the NHS and our premises have been regularly audited by our customers with Shelden Healthcare receiving a total satisfaction with zero non- compliance recorded. Additionally our Auditing Partners, Perfectus Medical Ltd, provide us with a complete audit service for Mattresses, Active Systems, Beds and Cushions for the purpose of sampling the micro-biological bioburden of the equipment that has undergone decontamination and drying processes.
Perfectus Medical Ltd has also been commissioned to undertake an environmental audit of the decontamination facility and all procedures undertaken by staff.
In January 2013 Shelden Healthcare signed a five year agreement with JLA Ltd. This agreement was to provide Commercial washing machines and the installation of the OTEX system, a validated ozone disinfection system. This new equipment will provide us and our customers with a validated alternative to Thermal disinfection.
