A prescription for minimizing germ spread

Sick patients shouldn’t be touching the same door handles

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) cites studies of COVID-19 that suggest it can remain viable for hours or days on surfaces, regardless of the material. Bacteria can remain unchanged on an object after two weeks at room temperature. Studies have shown that influenza can survive on surfaces and can infect a person for up to eight hours.

It’s nearly impossible to eliminate germs in an environment that exists to serve sick people, but clinics and hospitals can minimize how much those germs spread by helping people avoid touching the same surfaces.

One of the most common and potentially germ-free touch-points are door handles. Anytime patients and staff use a door handle to open a restroom or exam room door, they are at risk of sharing contagious germs and viruses.

The solution is the StepNpull hands-free, foot-operated door opener. Attach StepNpull on any interior and exterior door that needs to be pulled open to minimize the spread of germs on door handles.

“We installed StepNpulls on all of our latch-less interior doors to give employees and patients the ability to open doors with their foot. It's reducing the number of touch-points and cutting down on the spread of germs which. They're inexpensive and simple to install.”
