Background: Healthcare organizations continue to innovate and employ higher standards in the fight against healthcare acquired infections to protect patients and staff. But, challenges still exist and infectious microbes in water are continuing to threaten patient and employee health.
Tap and water fountain water is often contaminated in the distribution network and building plumbing. Bottled water is also vulnerable to contamination from handling and their open systems. Faucets are increasingly being cited as a serious source of Pseudomonas, Streptococcus and E. Coli. infections.
The Solution: QWS revolutionary Firewall technology is featured in many of our water coolers for pure water.
