Infection Control Keyboards for Safer Healthcare & Life Science Facilities
“Infection Control Begins at the Entry Level”
Computer keyboards are everywhere in Healthcare facilities. Multiple users of single computer workstations and the need to reduce hospital acquired infections (HAI’s) are driving the need for an infection-control keyboard: a new generation designed specifically for medical environments.
Typical healthcare keyboards have many users, so cross-contamination from and to patients by users can result in fatal consequences—particularly if transient bacteria such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) exist. Strong arguments for improved infection-control methodology are evident where computer keyboards collect bacteria and require attention to maintain cleanliness.
Esterline, Advanced Input Systems has developed several infection-control keyboards that feature a flat design that can be quickly cleaned in place with hospital-grade disinfectants. Users can touch-type with excellent tactile key response to swiftly document care. The new Medigenic® Essential model is a cost-effective alternative to conventional keyboards and covers. The Compliance model—now available in 101/102-key and 104/105-key layouts—adds an alert system that reminds users to clean the keyboard at regular intervals and provides backlit keys for use in low-light areas. Upwards of 10 different keyboard variants are available to meet multiple language requirements.
*Features available on the Compliance model.
