Congratulations to KTR Group, CarePlus™ Gold Partner based in Melbourne, Victoria, for successfully securing the new project to integrate a complete CarePlus™ Nurse Call System, including the new Antimicrobial Call Points, at Rose Lodge Aged Care. The $6 million redevelopment project at Wonthaggi will add 32 new rooms and new communal amenities as part of the major extension to the existing facility. CarePlus™ antimicrobial patient and staff stations / call points contain antimicrobial protection or infection control built into the device to reduce risk and spread of serious infection, bacteria, and superbugs such as MRSA. These call points ensure the safety of residents and staff as the antimicrobial material is able to achieve a 99% biocidal kill rate for a wide range of bacteria, and harmful microorganisms. The CarePlus™ antimicrobial call point meets Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) requirements for medical devices, which requires medical device manufacturers to design and produce their product in a way that minimises or eliminates the risk of infection and contamination to a patient or user of the device.
