Altro Whiterock™ White.

A leading hospital in Melbourne gets a hygiene makeover using Altro Whiterock throughout operating theatres!

Hygiene and ease of cleaning is of the utmost importance when it comes to operating theatres and its no surprise Altro Whiterock was chosen for the recent refurbishments at one of Melbourne's top hospitals.

An evolution of trends and expectations within healthcare has changed the requirements of today's operating rooms, and other areas that demand superior levels of hygiene. Infection control, patient safety, and efficiency are all of increasing importance.

Altro Whiterock PVCu hygienic wall sheet provides a decorative, practical, and hygienic protection solution. Benefiting from a watertight, impervious surface, Altro Whiterock prevents water ingress, thereby discouraging bacteria growth and avoiding structural damage.

It can be hygienically finished around fixtures and fittings and does not require grout so the risk of contamination is dramatically reduced. The fully bonded system includes thermoformed pencil rounded corners giving bacteria nowhere to hide and making it easy to clean and disinfect.

Hygienic Wall Sheets from Altro

According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), hundreds of millions of patients are affected by healthcare-associated infections globally, with seven percent of patients in developed countries acquiring at least one. In high-income countries, approximately 30% of patients in intensive care units are affected by at least one healthcare-associated infection. This results in risk to the patient, increased hospital stays and financial losses for health systems. While a high proportion of healthcare-associated infections are attributed to the use of invasive devices, high-risk, and sophisticated procedures and the insufficient application of standard and isolation precautions are also cited.

Altro Whiterock's internal and external angles are thermoformed on site, avoiding the need for unsightly corner trims which are potential dirt traps and difficult to clean. Thermoformed corners and angles provide a much more hygienic surface than the grouted joints associated with tiles, which require an aggressive cleaning regime. Thermoformed corners maintain the same level of impact resistance as the standard product, which is particularly important as corners tend to receive most knocks.
