I don't think that this disposal is material. It is simply an employee (not main board), cashing in a bonus. Understandable and pretty standard stuff.

A bit disappointing to see a director sell today, especially as it's so much larger than the recent director buy. It won't put me off though.

As you'd expect, each healthcare trust seems to produce its own procedure detailing the whos and whats. I found this searching for the word Tristel hxxp://www.eastcheshire.nhs.uk/About-The-Trust/policies/I/IC%20Cleaning%20Policy%20ECT2453.pdf appendix 1 on page 15 gives more mentions of Tristel than you can shake a stick at. It seems when they think ClO2 they think Tristel

An extract from the hospital cleaning specification manual hxxp://www.ahcp.co.uk/downloads/revised-healthcare-cleaning-manual-2009-06-v2.pdf Seems up to date although originally 2009 8.5 Dual function chlorine dioxide-based cleaner/disinfectants These products serve the same purpose as the hypochlorite cleaner/disinfectants discussed at 6.4, but use a different chemical technology. This technology is not currently widely used in UK healthcare premises, but its use is growing quickly, mainly for terminal cleans and during infection outbreaks. How does it work? The technology uses two components kept apart in separate sections of a sachet. When combined by manually squeezing the sachet, the components combine to make a solution which both cleans and disinfects, using chlorine dioxide, usually at a concentration of 125 parts per million . The detergent effect removes organic and oily soiling into the solution, while the chlorine dioxide kills microbes by oxidisation. Because chlorine dioxide is a more effective oxidant than chlorine, the concentration required is smaller than with hypochlorite products. Benefits • there is evidence that this technology is very efficient at the removal and killing of pathogens, and could play a role in reducing infection transmission in specific infections, such as Clostidium difficile where there might be an environmental element to its transmission; • the technology does not produce irritant fumes to the same degree as hypochlorite products; • chlorine dioxide does not produce chlorinated organics and therefore may be less damaging to the environment than hypochlorite products. © Association of Healthcare Cleaning Professionals 2013. All Rights Reserved. 163 REVISED HEALTHCARE CLEANING MANUAL Limitations This technology is currently more expensive than some hypochlorite products. Key findings • there is well established evidence which suggests that this technology is efficient at removing and destroying pathogens and can contribute to the control of infection; • the combination of detergent and disinfectant has the potential to save time and resources; • because fewer irritant fumes are produced there is a potential benefit to the health and safety of users. Key recommendations There is good evidence that dual function chlorine dioxide-based cleaner/disinfectants are effective in removing and destroying pathogens. There are potential savings in time and resource in combining cleaning and disinfecting processes. Targeted use of the technology is recommended for terminal cleans and during infection outbreaks to kill and remove microbes along a specific route of infection transmission. Advice from the local Infection Control Team should be sought prior to use.

It seems there is a clear audit trail for each device to be cleaned so accountability should ( my least favourite word) ensure the job is done properly. I wouldn't want to be personally held liable for giving a patient some disease because I had cut corners. Now if only the cleaning contractors in UK hospitals could be held liable for a hospital acquired disease, bring back old style Matrons.

Thank you MJ, those are very well produced videos - plenty of detail My A Chem. is also dated which is why I like the product, it being simple and understandable. Re: the US market, I wonder if they will have the patience for the cleaning process.

Hi Piedro, no denying that ClO2 is a nasty dangerous chemical and very dangerous in bulk. As far as I understand from much reading and an A level in chemistry from well into the last century, :-) , Tristel's proprietary edge is keeping the two chemicals which react to produce ClO2 separate until the point of use. See the second stage of the 3 part cleaning of the bum camera probe in the youtube video. The tissue from the foil wrapper contains one chemical and the operator spends 15 secs thoroughly mixing a blob of foam which contains the other chemical and then you're ready to go. Https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hk3U6IqsSl8 I haven't had time yet but there seems to be training videos for other products which I assume use the same binary chemical approach where the packaging varies. I've just dug a little deeper into Clinimax from your previous post, they also produce a ClO2 Biocide but their method is to make a 500ml batch which lasts for 14 days which is probably more economical for mattresses, floors etc. As previously stated, Tristel's edge is in novel proprietary mixing methods and packaging which from recent results, users seem to like. I'm particularly hopeful for the US market where the probability of litigation as a result of hospital acquired infections makes for a huge market for convenient sterilisation products. You can't put a camera in an autoclave to sterilise it for example.

Source and Melton, this issue requires further research. That article I see is dated 14-Nov-2013 and was clearly promoted by Tristel. The part "in a form that only Tristel produces" is interesting when considering the 'Doncaster and Bassetlaw Hospitals' document mentioned above. The referred cleaning manual seems to be from 2009: hTTp://www.nrls.npsa.nhs.uk/EasySiteWeb/getresource.axd?AssetID=61814 keep digging ...

Melton John. That statement from the new NHS manual seems very compelling. It seems to specify Tristel product alone needs to be used by all hospitals, which is very positive. Only question now is do all hospitals abide by that guidance or not?! Seems they should do given the seriousness of the bug and the need for them to execute effective cleaning regimes etc. Regards, Source. ------------------posted NHS standard below again -------------- "The latest leading healthcare cleaning manual from the NHS has recommended the use of chlorine dioxide based disinfectants, in a form that only Tristel produces, to fight C.difficile and MRSA outbreaks."

Have a look at this ... Doncaster and Bassetlaw Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust SPILLAGE OF BLOOD AND OTHER BODY FLUIDS Date issued: 17 April 2014 Next review date: January 2017 ... 4.1   ; DISINFECTION OF BLOOD AND BODY FLUID SPILLS Disinfection aims to reduce the number of microorganisms to a safe level.  The disinfectants currently used within the Trust for dealing with blood and body fluids are Difficil‐S and a Chlorine‐based disinfectant Haz Tabs.   Difficil‐S is used within wards, high risk areas such as Accident Emergency and theatres (how to use Difficil‐S refer to PAT/IC 24 Cleaning and disinfection of ward based equipment). Difficil‐S is an agent that contains Chlorine dioxide as the active chemical, Chlorine dioxide is a gas in solution it is rapidly effective against viruses, fungi, bacteria and spores.   Difficil‐S should not be mixed with other chemicals see. Once this solution is prepared it can be used directly onto the spillage. It is suggested the spill is absorbed using e.g. paper towels and then disinfect the remaining areas using Difficil‐S.   A Chlorine‐based disinfectant (Haz Tabs) is used within outpatients departments and communal areas outside wards. Haz Tabs disinfectant solution is expressed as parts per million (ppm) of available chlorine. A dilution of 10,000 ppm is required for treating blood spillages.

Another chlorine dioxide product: Difficil-S® Surfaces Difficil-S for Surfaces can be used for many applications including: - walls and floors - toilets sinks and showers - organic and blood spills - food preparation surfaces - commodes About Difficil-S Difficil-S is a range of supremely effective, broad-spectrum disinfectant cleaners that achieve a 5-log reduction (99.999%) in pathogens within 5 minutes. Unlike most disinfectant cleaners which commonly use chlorine as their active ingredient, Difficil-S uses chlorine dioxide, which is very different from chlorinated products like sodium hypochlorite, chlorine tables, bleach and hypochlorous acid both in behaviour and its chemical structure. hTTp://www.clinimax.co.uk/about-difficil-s_clinimax/

FYI, Hospice sentenced after Legionella death A hospice based in Sydenham, Kent, has been sentenced after a patient died of Legionnaires' disease and a worker suffered life changing effects as a result of contracting the disease. Southwark Crown Court heard how a man was admitted to St Christopher's Hospice (SCH) in July 2012. He was taken to a nearby Hospital three days later, where he died after just over a month. He was subsequently found to have died of Legionnaires' disease which he contracted during his time at the Hospice. In December 2012, an orderly worker contracted Legionnaires' disease while carrying out her duties at the Hospice and spent 18 days in a coma before making a recovery. After the hearing HSE inspector Matt Raine said: "The risks of Legionella are well known in the healthcare industry. St Christopher's Hospice had implemented some measures in an attempt to control legionella. However, they failed to appoint a competent person to manage the risk of legionella in the Hospice's hot and cold water system. "The failures in the management of Legionella led to conditions in hot and cold water system that favoured the proliferation of Legionellae. It was entirely foreseeable that there would be risk of contracting Legionnaires disease for patients and employees working at this hospice." St Christopher's Hospice, of Lawrie Park Road, Sydenham, London, pleaded guilty to breaching Sections 3(1) and 2(1)of the Health & Safety at Work etc Act 1974, and was sentenced to a two year conditional discharge, and ordered to pay costs of £25,000.

Excellent find Pedroble - no wonder the sales reported in the recent trading update to the NHS were ahead of expectation.. - an extract from that article which may be read via your link without registering.. Success of the strategy WUTH is recognised as one of three Trusts in the North West of England having established problems with CPE (Multidrug Resistant Carbapenemase Producing Enterobacteriaceae) since their first case in May 2011, yet now gaining control as other Trusts are considered at risk. Between 2011-2014, WUTH reported seven bloodstream infections, with an all-cause mortality of 50% and three protracted outbreaks. A review of cleaning processes and the introduction of an enhanced cleaning and disinfection programme incorporating chlorine dioxide in combination with other control measures was considered a major factor in terminating a protracted Trust wide outbreak of CPE. Staff at WUTH consider this programme to be as important as prompt identification and effective isolation of colonised or infected patients, understanding the impact of not delivering an optimal preventative strategy. Ensuring that enhanced cleaning and disinfection remained a vital part of the preventative strategy, the subsequent containment and management of CPE resulted in zero tolerance to CPE bacteraemia, a reduction in all other clinical infections, and reduced bed days due to ward or bay closures.
