Hand sanitising

Alcohol hand-rubs should be located at the point of care. Where risk assessment has identified that hand-rub at the point of care is not appropriate, care staff can carry individual alcohol hand-rub dispensers.

Trichol Gel and Neptune Alcohol Hand Rub are our own branded alcohol hand gel. Both our Trichol gel and Neptune products are available in different formats. 100ml, 500ml, 800ml, 1000ml and 5ltr containers / pouches .

PPE – single use gloves

As with all items of PPE, the need for gloves and the selection of appropriate materials should be subject to careful assessment of the task to be carried-out and its related risks to the resident and the care worker. 

We offer three materials of disposable glove – vinyl, nitrile, latex.

Aprons

These should be worn by care workers when there is a risk of clothing being contaminated with blood or other body fluids, or when a resident has a known infection. A disposable plastic apron should be worn during direct care, bed-making or when undertaking the decontamination of equipment. 

The apron is as a single-use item used for one procedure or episode of care and then discarded as clinical waste on completion of the task.

Our aprons are available in three strengths – standard, premium and superior. Either in roll of flat pack format. Across five variants of colour – red,blue,green,yellow and white. Please note yellow, red and green aprons are only available on roll and standard strength.

Laundry sacks

All dirty linen should be handled with care and attention paid to the potential spread of infection. Personal protective equipment (PPE) such as plastic aprons and suitable gloves should be worn for handling dirty or contaminated clothing and linen. Linen should be removed from a resident’s bed with care, and placed in an appropriate container according to the segregation category.

Personal clothing should also be removed with care and placed in the bag, not placed upon the floor. Linen and other dirty laundry should not be held close to the chest to prevent contamination of the uniform (a plastic apron should be worn). Any segregation required prior to washing should be carried out before transport to the laundry area, avoiding the need for additional handling within the laundry.

Staff should never empty bags of linen onto the floor to sort the linen into categories – this presents an unnecessary risk of infection. Many care homes currently use water-soluble bags within cotton sacks in a wheeled trolley to facilitate this separation, keeping linen off the floor before taking the bags to the laundry.

Our dissolve strip sacks are available in Red, Green and Clear

Cleaning

Cleaning physically removes contamination but does not necessarily destroy micro-organisms. It removes micro-organisms and the organic matter on which they thrive. 

Trichem Scotland offer a number of detergent options for “general purpose cleaning“.

Disinfection

Disinfection reduces the number of viable micro-organisms but may not necessarily inactivate some microbial agents, such as certain viruses and bacterial spores. 

Sterilisation

Sterilisation renders an object free from viable micro-organisms including viruses and bacterial spores.
