Oct. 22, 2020

Nanosonics announced the launch of the trophon2 Giveback Giveaway in honor of International Infection Prevention Week (IIPW). With almost $300,000 in prizes, healthcare facilities can enter for a chance to win one of 14 prize packages, each worth nearly $20,000. 

The company is joining together with the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) as a corporate champion for IIPW, October 18-24. 

“This year, in particular, has put infection prevention on the global stage and a spotlight on protecting public health,” said Ken Shaw, Regional president for the United States, Canada and Latin America for Nanosonics. “We want to honor those on the front lines of infection control. We recognize the fundamental role infection preventionists and health care providers play in our public health, and we value their diligent efforts to keep patients and medical staff safe, which is why we want to further support their hard work in bringing the highest standards of care to their facilities.” 

From October 18-31, 2020, healthcare facilities can enter to win a trophon2 prize package, which includes a trophon2 with a one-year standard warranty, accessories and consumables, in-person service and training, and a clinical site assessment. A total of 14 winners will be selected in November 2020. Proper ultrasound probe reprocessing can help diminish the risk of probe cross-contamination. According to an alert from The Joint Commission, 74 percent of all “immediate threats to life” were from improperly sterilized or high-level disinfected equipment. 

Nanosonics’ trophon2 can help reduce the risk of ultrasound probe related cross infection, offering effective bactericidal, fungicidal, virucidal and mycobactericidal protection# while ensuring that high level disinfection (HLD) is performed accurately and consistently. trophon is the first HLD system in the world proven to kill native, infectious, high-risk HPV. The device supports compliance with the latest guidelines and minimizes staff exposure to hazardous chemicals, fumes and spills. 

 “We are happy to have the support of Nanosonics for IIPW,” said APIC President Connie Steed, MSN, RN, CIC, FAPIC. “APIC welcomes the healthcare companies who have joined International Infection Prevention Week as Corporate Champions. Through IIPW, we reach healthcare professionals and patients with lifesaving information about infection prevention and the importance of infection preventionists.”
