What makes the back of an ambulance clean?
The COVID-19 pandemic heightened awareness of emerging infectious diseases and microbial threats, as well as the need for effective ambulance decontamination protocols. Studies show our cleaning efforts can miss a lot of pathogens. As organizations seek to improve the ways they clean and decontaminate the many surfaces in each vehicle, they are exploring a variety of solutions with individual strengths and drawbacks.
A promising answer that’s more encompassing may be found in the use of hydrogen peroxide vapor. Long used in hospitals, this method has now been optimized for EMS and ambulance applications. It offers a comprehensive way to bio-decontaminate the patient compartment and get ambulances back into service while helping to eliminate the environment as a source of infection.
