Copper Never Sleeps: Creating a Hostile Environment for Pathogens

Thursday, June 14

6:30 AM – 8:15 AM

Location: Convention Center – 102 A-F



An increasing number of published trials demonstrate the role of copper as an effective infection prevention measure. In this session we will examine the impact on HAI rates of replacing patient gowns and bed linens, the most frequently touched and contaminated surfaces in a patient room, with copper impregnated patient gowns and bed linens.

In 2017, Sentara Healthcare expanded the deployment of copper textiles to an additional six hospitals. Join us as Jacqueline Butler discloses, new, previously unreleased data showing statistically significant reductions in HAI.
