Heating healthcare facilities
The WHO estimates that each year in Europe around 37,000 people die as a result of an infection they acquired while being cared for in a hospital. Multiresistant bacteria and the lack of efficient cleaning are the main sources of this highly tragic and costly situation. Healthcare Associated Infections (HAI) affect at least 7% of all patients and annual societal costs to treat and prevent them are approximately € 7 billion in Europe alone.
Improved hygiene = Improved healthcare
The figure on the right shows some horrific numbers on how many patients are affected by HAI in different parts of the world each year. Research by leading experts show that better cleaning is one of the most effective ways to stop infections from spreading.
Conventional radiators have many spaces and openings for bacteria-containing dust and dirt and to collect, and they are difficult to clean thoroughly. The hygienic radiators from Hudevad are developed for the purpose of being easy to clean, so that they are optimal for use in hospitals, nursing homes, schools and kindergardens where good hygiene is of the utmost importance. In addition, many of our radiators are space-saving and have rounded corners making them ideal for dementia facilities as well.
Expert counsel and collaboration
Hudevad’s hygienic radiators are all developed with extensive counselling from and in close collaboration with healthcare experts.
