Human Immunodeficiency Viruses (HIV), Hepatitis B & C, TB, Syphilis, Gonorrhea, Chlamydia and MRSA have high incident rates in correctional facilities. The prison population is susceptible to infectious diseases through exposure to blood and other bodily fluids, drug injection, poor health care, prison overcrowding, lax cleaning protocols, multi-user showers, security issues, and other issues.
The Five C’s of Transmission
- Compromised skin (even minor cuts and scrapes from shaving)
- Contaminated items and surfaces (towels, band aids, tissues)
- Lack of Cleanliness
Bactronix® is a science based company that measures, kills and prevents bacteria, mold, viruses, fungi, odors and VOC’s from returning. The Two-Step Process is applied electrostatically and ensures 100% coverage.
Bactronizing is environmentally responsible and does not use toxic chemicals such as ammonias, bleaches, peroxides or metal-based poisons such as silver or copper ions. The process creates no harmful by-products or ozone arming VOC’s.
Increased sanitization means fewer risks for prison personnel, and that can translate into fewer illnesses, fewer call offs, less overtime, and an increase in overall morale.
