Woodard was able to help when an employee at a local bank branch was diagnosed with C.diff, and the employee’s physician recommended that the branch be completely sanitized to ensure that no other staff or bank members would risk being infected as well.Area of Concern:An employee at a local bank branch was diagnosed with C.diff, and the employee’s physician recommended that the branch be completely sanitized to ensure that no other staff or bank members would risk being infected as well. The bank reached out to Woodard to request hand-cleaning of the entire facility by the start of the next business day. Woodard recommended against hand-cleaning due to the extremely contagious nature of C.diff, the ability for this type of cleaning to miss spots leading to the spread of the infection, and the extremely high cost of labor that would have to go into this type of job. Instead, we recommended that the facility have our nVIRO Shield® system applied, since the red antimicrobial product fights highly dangerous bacteria such as C.diff in a very time efficient, cost-effective manner.The Solution:Our trained technician tested the facility prior to spraying, applied all three of the nVIRO Shield® products, and then tested again. The application itself took about 2.5 hours and provided the staff with peace of mind that they would be protected against any further bacteria growth. The test results came back about a week later, and showed there was no bacteria present after the application.Summary:Our ability to respond to this client immediately during their time of panic meant the world to them. While they couldn’t be sure that their facility was affected, they wanted to get the facility treated and tested in order to provide peace of mind and a protective insurance policy of sorts. Our test results showed no bacteria growth, and now the entire staff can rest easy knowing their facility now has an antibacterial shield surrounding it.
