Make the Switch: Upgrade to Closed Cell or Coated Sponges for Hassle-Free Cleaning and Compliance

In today's healthcare landscape, maintaining rigorous standards of cleanliness and infection control is non-negotiable. As imaging facilities strive to uphold these standards, one area that often goes overlooked is the choice of sponges used during procedures. If you're still relying on traditional non-coated sponges, now is the time to make the upgrade to closed-cell or coated alternatives. Not only do these modern sponges offer ease of cleaning and disinfection between patients, but they also ensure compliance with stringent regulatory requirements. Here's why upgrading your sponges is a prudent investment in patient safety and regulatory adherence:

Effortless Cleaning and Disinfection:

  1. Closed-Cell and Coated Technology: Unlike traditional non-coated sponges, closed-cell or coated sponges are designed with materials that resist the absorption of fluids and contaminants. This makes them incredibly easy to clean and disinfect between patients, reducing the risk of cross-contamination and ensuring a hygienic environment for every procedure.
  2. Quick and Effective Sanitization: With closed-cell or coated sponges, there's no need to worry about lingering pathogens or difficult-to-clean surfaces. A simple wipe-down with an approved disinfectant is all it takes to maintain these sponges in pristine condition, saving valuable time and resources for your imaging facility.

Compliance and Peace of Mind:

  1. Adherence to Regulatory Standards: In today's regulatory landscape, compliance with infection control guidelines is paramount. Upgrading to closed-cell or coated sponges demonstrates your commitment to providing a safe and sanitary environment for patients and staff alike. By staying ahead of regulatory requirements, you mitigate the risk of penalties and uphold the reputation of your facility as a leader in patient safety.
  2. Enhanced Patient Confidence: Patients place their trust in healthcare providers to prioritize their well-being at every step of the care journey. By investing in modern sponges that prioritize cleanliness and infection control, you instill confidence in patients that their health and safety are your top priorities.

Upgrade Your Sponges Today from non-coated sponges to closed-cell or coated alternatives is a proactive step towards enhancing cleanliness, infection control, and compliance within your imaging facility. With easy-to-clean surfaces and a commitment to regulatory standards, these modern sponges offer peace of mind for both healthcare providers and patients. Don't wait until regulatory scrutiny or contamination issues arise—make the switch to closed-cell or coated sponges today and elevate the standard of care in your facility.

Closed Cell Sponges are Waterproof AND have a Cleanable Surface!

Can I clean closed cell sponges? Absolutely. To clean the surface of the sponge that has become dirty or dusty with normal use and with storage, we recommend that you wash the surface with cold water and a mild general-purpose soap like a 409 spray. We recommend that you avoid using detergent cleaners that contain hydrocarbon solvents like acetone or ammonia as they are harsh on the surface and will shorten the life of your sponge. We also recommend that you avoid rigorous scrubbing, abrasive pads, or stiff brushes as they can also damage the surface as it would with any foam product.

Most imaging facilities require coated sponges or vinyl covered so that they can be cleaned and meet Joint Commission Standards. Do closed cell sponges have a coating? Closed cell sponges do not need a protective coating.  The foam itself is closed cell and non-porous, meaning it will not absorb any fluids unlike the un-coated open cell sponges that are on the market. The crosslink density of this foam is extremely high, and the surface can be easily cleaned & disinfected making them an excellent positioner for any imaging facility.
