Phoenix, AZ -- (ReleaseWire) -- 04/09/2018 -- C Diff Foundation's, "C. diff. Spores and More," is honored to announce Bruce Rippe, CEO of Trinity Guardion, manufacturer of the Trinity Guardion Patient Protective Barrier, and Edmond Hooker,MD, DrP, Associate Professor of Health Services Administration at Xavier University, as our guest speakers on April 10th , 2018 at 10:00 a.m. PT / 1:00 p.m. ET on http://www.cdiffradio.com.

These leading topic experts will be discussing Dr. Hooker's Clostridium difficile (C. diff.) research related to hospital beds and mattresses, the issues that prevent successful disinfection of soft mattress surfaces, the new regulatory landscape, and the proven solution to the problem. The data being shared will be beneficial to hospital nursing officers, infection preventionists, and environmental services professionals. Many healthcare professionals are unaware that hospital beds, which are the epicenter of patient care, can also be the epicenter of potentially life-threatening cross-contamination.

Trinity Guardion's patient protective microbarrier is the first and only launderable and reusable mattress cover system specifically for medical beds. It's designed to protect each patient and prolong the useful life of expensive high-tech hospital mattresses, by shielding the mattress and bed deck from every previous occupant's microbial biome. More importantly, it protects each patient from residual pathogenic organisms such as C. diff., which can cause serious illness and death, and may be present even if previous patients were not symptomatic.
