With the risk of hospital-associated infections and their associated costs on the rise, Nephros FDA Cleared Filters are an important addition to aid in infection control.
Infection Control – S100 Point of Use Water Filters
Sinks and showers are one of the primary sources of patient exposure given the transfer of bacteria through atomization. The Nephros S100 Filters are disposable point of use micro-filters used to filter EPA quality drinking water. The filters retain bacteria. By retaining bacteria in water for washing and drinking, the filters may aid in infection control. These highly effective filters are ideal for high-risk patient areas: ICU/NICU, Transplant, Oncology, Hematology, Burn Unit, Surgical, Pediatrics, and Geriatrics. They are easily adapted to sinks and showers.
Infection Control – DSU-H Ice Machine Filter
One of the Critical Control Points in a hospital’s water management plan is ice machines. Nephros’ proprietary hollow fiber membrane ultrafilter effectively retains bacteria and viruses found in water. The water permeability of the membrane is more than double that of membranes with comparable pore size, thus providing efficient flow performance relative to the physical size of the filter. The DSU-H’s dual-stage design provides redundancy and up to 6 months of protection in a self-contained unit.
