Our patients trust us to give them safe, quality care and it was important to build a facility using the most innovative and effective infection prevention technologies available to us.
NEW! DECON 5
DEACON FIVE is a single solution product that is very effective for killing pathogens.
Germs, viruses and toxins hide in biofilm which is a thin resistant layer of microorganisms that form on and coat surfaces. DEACON FIVE breaks down the biofilm allowing the germs, viruses and toxins to be more effectively treated.
The product is delivered in mist form that covers both hard and soft surfaces without harming goods or leaving any toxic residue. DEACON FIVE is applied to all surfaces every day at our facility by a Certified Technician.
NCS was the first free-standing surgery center to use Indigo-Clean continuous environmental disinfecting operating room light fixtures to help reduce health care acquired infections.
Indigo-Clean lights safely and continuously disinfect the air and hard and soft surfaces.
Everlast Epoxy Flooring is made with an EPA registered antimicrobial additive to restrict the growth of microorganisms.
NCS installed the Everlast Epoxy Floor throughout the restricted areas that include the Operating Rooms, Sterile Processing and Sterile Storage.
The Everlast floor provides continuous protection and impedes the growth of microorganisms and provides long-term protection from a broad spectrum of bacteria, fungi, yeast, actinomycetes (gram-positive anaerobic bacteria) and mildew.
SensoScientific Temperature and Humidity Monitoring System
NCS installed SensoScientific Temperature and Humidity Monitoring which allows us to monitor and document Temperature and Humidity in all the clinical areas, and temperature in the refrigerators, freezers and fluid warmers.
Each transmitter monitors against preset conditions and alerts are transmitted via email and text message to the Safety Officer.
MicroShield is a revolutionary hardware finish coating that permanently suppresses the growth of bacteria, algae, fungus, mold and mildew.
The Agion antimicrobial compound is a silver-based antimicrobial agent that is incorporated into the MicroShield coating which was applied to the door handles throughout the facility.
Infection Control Plan
NCS has developed and implemented an Infection Control Plan, which is reviewed and updated annually and more frequently as needed.
NCS has contracted with a qualified professional consultant who has training in Infection Control and is responsible for developing and maintaining written objectives, policies and procedures, an organizational plan, and a quality improvement program for the infection prevention and control service.
NCS also has a trained health care professional on site that is responsible for the day-to-day activities related to infection control.
NCS employs two full time Certified Registered Central Service Technicians (CRCST) who are responsible for decontaminating, inspecting, assembling, disassembling, packaging and sterilizing reusable instruments or devices that are essential for patient safety.
NCS is Licensed by the NJ Department of Health as an Ambulatory Care Facility. Also Medicare Certified and Accredited by the AAAHC.
