Learning matters when it comes to preventing infections.
Owens & Minor is much more than a supplier
We are committed to empowering you and your staff to reduce and prevent infections across the continuum of care.
HALYARD* – funded research revealed that an amazing 87% of sterilized instrument containers do not maintain sterility to the point of use, putting surgical patients at risk of infection from contaminated instruments. (Instruments wrapped in HALYARD* sterilization wrap remained 100% sterile in this study.)
Our research has also focused on the risks of lint contamination in surgery. Changing from woven linen and spunbond fabrics to polypropylene drapes and gowns is a proven way to reduce this risk.
By attacking SSIs from multiple angles, we can help arm you with the information and expertise you need to reduce infections in your facility.
