Microfiber "Super Mop" helps reduce hospital acquired infections

April 25, 2019 | Healthcare

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, about 1 in 31 hospital patients has at least one healthcare-associated infection. The stats are so high that in 2009, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services put forth a five-year action plan to help reduce the number of hospital acquired infections, or HAIs, that occur in American hospitals. We’re now 10 years into the plan and we’re moving in the right direction. However, consistent and comprehensive preventative measures need to be implemented at all healthcare facilities to ensure this number remains low.

Microfiber Super MopThat’s where Morgan Services comes in. At Morgan Healthcare, we understand the importance of a properly cleaned hospital room to help reduce the risk of hospital acquired infection. Things like proper laundering and thorough mopping are critical to reducing the instance of infections and ensuring good patient care. As part of our efforts to combat infection, we’ve developed the Morgan Microfiber Program where our “Super Mop” is a high performer.

Benefits of the exclusive Morgan Services “Super Mop”:

  • Denser, thicker mop pad
  • Picks up more contaminants
  • Can be used wet or dry and is able to eliminate dust mopping prior to wet mopping
  • Single use per room eliminates potential for cross-contamination
  • Reduces water and chemical usage by 70%

“Since switching to the Super Mop Program, our floors have never been cleaner, and our staff always has enough mops on hand to do the job right.” - Steward Healthcare, Massachusetts

Because of the Super Mop’s denser mop pad design, it has been proven to be especially effective. In fact, we’re so confident in the Super Mop’s success that we’ve provided training for proper usage. Begin by viewing our Microfiber Training video, and follow up with a member of our staff to learn more about effective cleaning techniques.

As part of our Microfiber Program, hospitals receive a weekly shipment of mop pads and microfiber cloths that are tracked using radio-frequency identification (RFID). We help maintain a constant inventory at your facility - picking up and replacing dirty cloths with new ones that have been laundered to the highest standards. This total commitment to cleanliness is what has granted many of our facilities the Healthcare Laundry Accreditation Council’s HLAC certification.
