New Baden, IL – Clinton Manor Living Center has recently installed a Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization (NPBI) clear air system and negative pressure machines within their buildings to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and to protect residents, employees and visitors.
These infection control improvements were purchased through federal and state government funding received during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The NPBI technology cleans the air inside of buildings by using the existing HVAC system. Ions are safely released in the air, removing contaminants such as pathogens, mold and allergens. This improves overall air quality, especially for those with asthma and respiratory conditions. The system also helps eliminate odors, creating a fresh scented environment.
Clinton Manor also purchased negative pressure machines to improve isolation spaces. These portable machines can be moved wherever necessary to prevent contaminated air from escaping the isolation space and spreading to other areas of the building.
Michael Brave, CEO/President at Clinton Manor, expressed why it is so important to be investing in this technology. “This equipment will allow us to make any space a negative pressure room without having to move an individual into a special care room. It will help maintain some stability in their life during a difficult time. This will help support everyone's overall wellbeing.”
In addition to the technology advancements, the team at Clinton Manor continually improves their infection control procedures to combat COVID-19. One example of this is by having a designated, full-time Infection Preventionist and two additional nurses with this training. The three Infection Preventionists received their training in 2020 and are all qualified to run a comprehensive infection prevention and control program.
Infection Control is essential at Clinton Manor and continuously improving. The team at Clinton Manor has put in place the proper resources, both in technology and qualified caregivers, to provide exceptional care during COVID-19 and beyond.
At Clinton Manor Living Center, their mission is to passionately support each person in living a meaningful and satisfying life! Clinton Manor provides long-term care through skilled nursing that accommodates seniors or individuals with high medical needs.
