Hoteling is the Latest Trend Among Businesses
A big trend popping up lately is hoteling, and it is being used by all types of businesses including real estate agencies, consulting firms, law firms, manufacturers’ representatives, telecommuters, and flex-time workers. Hoteling is where employees, especially traveling employees, don’t have a permanent office space, so they reserve a space as they need it. The employee might only be on-site for one or two days to complete their work; then they move on to the next location.

An employee might have a change of clothes, tablet, laptop computer, various chargers, important papers, etc. That’s where we can help.

Healthcare Associated Infections (HAIs) are very scary to think about. According to this infographic, if you are admitted to a hospital you have a 5% chance of contracting a HAI. While that might not seem like a very high percentage, nationwide 1.7 to 2 million people a year develop a HAI and nearly 99,000 of these people will die as a result of their infection. That is more people dying from HAIs than breast cancer and prostate cancer combined. Yet the problem is that no one is talking about this silent killer. Which is a shame because evidence suggests that the majority of HAIs are preventable.
A large percentage of infectious diseases are transmitted by touch. Proper sanitation of touch surfaces and adhering to stringent hand washing rules is one of the most beneficial things a healthcare facility can do to prevent Healthcare Associated Infections. But there is more that can be done.
Anti-Microbial Copper Surfaces will Help Reduce HAIs
Introducing Anti-Microbial Copper surfaces to your healthcare facility will also help in the fight against HAIs. The Anti-Microbial Copper surfaces actually kill 99.9% of bacteria that cause Healthcare Associated Infections within two hours of exposure. Consider Anti-Microbial Copper surfaces a back-up to protect patients in case the first line of defense – proper sanitation and hand washing – fails. It’s like locking your doors at night and also having an alarm system. You hope that the locked doors will keep you safe, but just in case you have the alarm system that will notify the authorities in case someone gets through the lock and into your house.
This is why we offer optional Anti-microbial Copper surfaces on all of our modular casework, laboratory furniture, and office furniture. This includes table tops, counter tops, desk work surfaces, pull handles, knobs, and more. Our Anti-microbial surfaces can be designed in any size and can be fitted onto new or existing casework and furniture.
