Study demonstrates the value of Clinell 2% chlorhexidine wash cloths

CHG_pink

A new study shows that daily bathing using Clinell 2% chlorhexidine wash cloths dramatically reduces the transmission of carbapenem-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii where other measured failed. In the Korean intensive care unit where the study was performed, the proportion of patient who acquired this extremely antibiotic resistant pathogen was reduced by more than half, from 21% to 10%. Previous attempts to address this organism using enhanced screening, contact precautions and environmental disinfection had failed to bring the outbreak under control. Another important finding from the study is that there was no development of resistance to chlorhexidine, despite its daily use on the unit.

Carbapenem-resistant A. baumannii – sometimes known as 'CRAB' – is an emerging issue worldwide. It combines a very high level of resistance to antibiotics with a propensity for causing problems in the sickest patients, for example, in intensive care and burns units. The organism often colonizes the skin, so the use of daily bathing using a chlorhexidine wash cloth makes sense – and this study shows that this intervention works.

Further work is being performed in other hospitals to evaluate the effectiveness of Clinell 2% chlorhexidine wash cloths for reducing the transmission of CRAB and other pathogens.

We would like to thank all those who attended Infection Prevention 2015 and took the time to visit our stand. It is so good to see so many familiar faces and to meet new ones. It was lovely to be back in Liverpool and the organising committee did an incredible job of making the event fun, educational and thoroughly enjoyable. We'll never be able to look at an Air Steward in the same way! It was rewarding to see the people and Trusts that we work with regularly receiving the credit their hard work and dedication deserves, in the IPS annual awards. We hope our industry leading aftercare support has helped them to achieve some of their goals. We are especially proud of our Clinical Director, Martin Kiernan, who won the Brendan Moore Award for his continued excellence in Infection Prevention and Control.

The GAMA Healthcare stand was very busy throughout the exhibition. We gave away some very popular selfie sticks, bluetooth speakers, delicious sweets, phone stands and of course, the usual multi-coloured pens and bags. Our new EvaluClean audit system proved very popular and it was great to receive feedback from our users on the frontline. If your trust is interested in running a trial with our BETA app please don't hesitate to contact us.

Brand new sales department for GAMA

March 2016

GAMA Healthcare is proud to launch a brand new sales department to meet the growing sales demand from the non-acute sectors in both healthcare and beyond. Over the past 11 years since our formation we have focused on acute healthcare and have grown to be the largest supplier of both wet and dry wipes to the NHS.

During this time we have managed all non-hospital sales through an exclusive distribution agreement with Steroplast Healthcare, and this partnership has proved to be very successful where they have done a fantastic job in promoting our products in this area to many sectors including primary care, dental, care homes, hospices and veterinary to name a few. Steroplast will continue to be a key partner distributor for GAMA Healthcare products to the non acute sector, and will be a key partner in the first aid sector.

The new Non Acute Sales department will be headed up by Adam Cockley. Adam joins GAMA with over 12 years of experience in the cleaning and hygiene industry. We wish Adam success at this new job and look forward to building up a very successful department.

New office




Hello Franca,


We are delighted to announce that GAMA Healthcare’s head office in China have completed their move to an impressive new office in Foshan, Guangdong this week.
We now have two branches in China, Foshan and Beijing.


     
     
     
     


The growth of our UK and worldwide operations has led to a major expansion of staff and resources in China. We now have more Quality and Operations staff than ever before, which ensures you will get the highest quality products, on time, every time. The new office will house our increased workforce and provide the company with room for further expansion. It will also act as a centre for our growing Chinese sale operations.
 
The new office features state-of-the-art meeting rooms, an onsite warehouse and a purpose built hospital training room. This will prove to be an invaluable tool in educating local and visiting healthcare professionals about the importance of infection control.
 
The staff of GAMA Healthcare (Foshan), along with our UK Regulatory Affairs Director – Mr Phillip Bates, celebrated this milestone with a lavish opening ceremony and party which was enjoyed by all who were lucky enough to be there!

The opening of the new office has already received attention from the local Chinese government who celebrated the increased investment in the area, by publishing photos and a report of the event on their website.
 
GAMA Healthcare UK would like to take this opportunity to congratulate GAMA Healthcare (Foshan) on their impressive new workplace, we hope that the new facility will contribute greatly to the future success of the company and its valued distributors!
