C. diff. and bacteria; Researchers recommend disinfecting the computer tablets

*Image

A new study conducted by research infectious disease specialists in North Dakota have confirmed how germs and harmful bacteria are being carried around on computer devices.  Alcohol wipes  proved effective to remove Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus bacteria, however; the Clostridium difficile  (C. diff.)  bacterial spore requires bleach products to kill and remove them from surfaces.

Acrylic or plastic screen protectors may be the answer to be able to utilize disinfectants that kill and remove the Clostridium difficile (C. diff.) spores amongst other harmful bacteria lingering on these and similar computer devices.  *Always check with the product manufacturer prior to using any disinfecting product.

Restricting mobile devices in the Isolation Rooms is a positive way to prevent the spreading of germs.   In settings where mobile devices are being shared (i.e., schools, libraries, healthcare settings, etc.) using disposable
electronic tablet covers purchased in bundles of ten is recommended by Dr. Dubert Guerrero
Infectious Disease specialist at Sanford Health.
