Don’t Let Your Healthcare Facility be a Step Behind
In 2014, the CDC estimated that on any given day, 1 in 25 hospitalized patients would develop at least one HAI.
HAIs (Healthcare-Associated Infections) have become an all too common problem in today’s hospitals.
Many technologies aid in reducing the infections that cause large numbers of remittances and even death of patients. Unfortunately, the current protocol in healthcare is reactive and for many, that’s too late. Approximately 300 people die every day, over 100,000 annually.
Today’s infection control programs such as hand hygiene, cleaning and disinfection – are not eliminating the number of HAIs coming into hospitals. And research from the University of Houston and others show contaminated footwear is a major source and transmitter of bacteria in hospitals.
Until now, no one has taken a proactive approach to killing these deadly foot-borne pathogens.
From the beginning, Green Earth Medical Solutions (GEMS) has been a different kind of company. A company whose business is focused on prevention, not treatment. We use a 100% natural state-of-the-art disruptive technology and innovative products with the goal of reducing the spread of deadly healthcare-associated infections, and by so doing, saving as many lives as possible. And that’s why we created PathO3Gen Solutions.
The Path of PathO3Gen Solutions
The idea for PathO3Gen Solutions was born in 2009 through founder, Asher Gil, an aeronautical engineer, entrepreneur, and visionary with 30+ years’ experience inventing innovative products.
After three years of product research, design and development, Asher collaborated with the Department of Cell Biology, Microbiology and Molecular Biology at the University of South Florida (USF) in Tampa, FL.
While working together, they developed one of the first footwear sanitizing stations (FSS). The purpose of an FSS is to kill germs and sanitize the soles of shoes. However, our device used a proprietary and later patented technology. It combines UVC + Ozone (O3) to penetrate the shell and denature the DNA, stopping replication.
After several tests, USF “certified” the product prototype for its effectiveness and four patents were granted by the USPTO (the United States Patent and Trademark Office).
Designed from the ground up, our devices’ sole purpose is to quickly reduce the microbial burden and its potential to spread HAIs in all healthcare facilities.
Taking A Step Ahead
HAIs don’t just affect healthcare facilities. In the future, we will turn our focus to eradicating life-threatening superbugs in other industries. Hospitality, public buildings, manufacturing, and many others that conduct business in high traffic spaces.
We’re passionate about saving lives, not just in the United States but, around the world.
