Prisons, jails and detention centers are faced with unique health challenges.
Crowding, poor hygiene and rationed access to soap and water are among the factors that can lead to sudden outbreaks of flu virus, MRSA and other communicable diseases. Prison health-care staff are aware that one or two instances of illness can spread like wildfire and it is not uncommon for facilities to go into lockdown at the first signs that an outbreak might occur.
When a prisoner or staff member comes in contact with a contaminated surface, the transfer of microbes begins, resulting in cross-contamination that can lead to illness, additional costs, and disruption to the facility on many levels.
Deploying SD ST and SD Pro can significantly reduce the spread of diseas in close quarters and in common areas. When paired with SD Clean and SD VO, we offer an integrated solution that can keep healthcare cost for detainees and staff down.
SD Labs’ approach is to provide an enhanced level of knowledge to the facilities team to help them better understand the appropriate use and application of surface cleaners and disinfectants with a sensitivity to removing products that can be weaponized (alcohol and chlorine bleach based products) while introducing our SD ST and SD Pro surface coatings to complement these new solutions to control surface contamination throughout the facility, extended periods of time.
