Proud to be a member of the Infection Prevention Society

Over the past year we’ve all seen how important Infection Prevention and Control measures are and how we can all play our part in controlling the spread. By joining the Infection Prevention Society (IPS) we’re demonstrating our commitment to finding new and improved ways of controlling the spread of infection and reducing the incidences of preventable infections.

 

Infection Prevention Society

We fully support the IPS’s mission:

“To inform, promote and sustain evidence-based infection prevention policy and practice to create a health and care system where no person’s health and wellbeing if harmed by preventable infection.”

Catheter Associate Urinary Tract Infections (CAUTI)

You may be surprised to learn that we have been actively preventing infection for many years through our innovative and thoughtfully developed Ugo Urology range.

Catheter Associated Urinary Tract Infections (CAUTI) are recognized as one of the most common healthcare associated infections (HCAI). Urinary Tract Infections (UTI) account for 17.2% of all HCAI, with up to 56% associated with an indwelling urethral catheter (EPID 3, 2014).

Not only do we develop urology medical devices to help manage long-term catheter use, we also offer training and guidance on how to use our products, whether this is the nurse, carer or catheter user. Correct handling, fitting, removing and disposal of the product, plays a huge part in preventing infection.

If you need any support using any of our products, please get in touch with us. Our team are here to help.
