New Clean Wipe Pro™ Washable Keyboard Aims to Enhance Cleaning Protocols

You’ve probably heard of viruses in computer systems, but did you know that computer keyboards are potential sites for the accumulation of germs and various harmful bacteria? High-touch items such as keyboards and mice are often overlooked in frequent cleaning practices.

Computer keyboards are essential devices used for various purposes across all industries and organizations. Keyboards in healthcare settings are used for checking test results, ordering laboratory tests, and entering patient records. They are high-touch surfaces that are often shared between the organization’s staff. As a result, keyboards in hospitals can accumulate even more bacteria than would be found in other settings.

The number of healthcare-acquired infections in the US is estimated to be 722,000. This has led to setbacks towards patient recovery and outcomes, and a lot of money is being spent on these health-acquired infections annually. These infections often result from cross-contamination through touch.

A study carried out at the University of North Carolina by Dr. William .A. Ratulla (Director of Hospital Epidemiology at UNC and a professor in UNC school of medicine), and his colleagues found that computer keyboards in healthcare settings contain a lot of bacteria. During the study, samples were collected from 25 computer keyboards in the University of North Carolina Hospital. The result of the study showed that each keyboard was contaminated with a minimum of two types of bacteria. The most common type of bacteria found on keyboards was coagulase-negative staphylococci. This bacterium is the leading cause of infections of the blood in hospital patients.

Best Solutions to Keyboards Contamination

To help improve the cleanliness of computer keyboards in healthcare settings and other public and vulnerable industries, keyboards must be cleaned frequently. Unfortunately, most keyboards are not waterproof or compatible with industrial-grade disinfectants. Hence, there is a limit to how thoroughly you can clean them.
