Keeping Hospitals Safe and Confident in the Era of Pandemics

Since the 1900s, there has been an uptick in plagues and pandemics across the globe.

From the Spanish Flu in 1918 that led to 50 million deaths and caused additional pandemics to Ebola, which caused over fifteen thousand deaths and multiple epidemics from 1976 to 2020, to the ongoing HIV/AIDs pandemic which started in 1981, there have been several global health crises in the past 100 years.

The world has entered “‘a pandemic era’ in which humans’ impact on the environment may cause new infectious diseases to emerge more frequently, Anthony Fauci, MD, and his colleague David Morens, MD, wrote in an article for Cell” [1].

The current coronavirus pandemic is yet another example of this “pandemic era,” and, unless things take a drastic turn, there will be more pandemics in the near future. That is why it is more important now than ever for hospitals to find innovative new ways to protect healthcare workers and provide care for their patients.

In the midst of the current pandemic, SCONE™ Medical Solutions has a solution for hospitals trying to provide confident care and keep their employees safe from COVID-19: the SCONE™.

The SCONE™, or Self-Contained Negative Pressure Environment, helps reduce the risk of infectious aerosol exposure to healthcare workers by providing an active barrier as an extra layer of protection. This device uses negative pressure technology to keep healthcare workers and others safe from contamination while caring for and visiting patients, allowing workers to provide the level of care these patients need in this pandemic era.

At SCONE™ Medical Solutions, we believe it is important for hospitals to be especially vigilant when protecting healthcare workers. Providing PPE isn’t enough.

With the SCONE™, healthcare workers will be able to feel confident that they are safe when they work on the frontlines helping patients battling COVID-19.

 

SCONE™ has received FDA Emergency Use Authorization. Connect with us to learn how to bring the SCONE™ protection to your healthcare facility.
