Infection Control in elderly care facilities

Germs are a part of everyday life. They exist anywhere and everywhere. However, three factors need to be present for infections to occur:

  • A source: an infection could be anywhere germs can live, including countertops and bathrooms. Germs even exist on human skin and live in the food we eat.
  • Susceptibility: this is a way that germs enter the body. Some people (immunocompromised) are more likely to suffer infections than others.
  • Transmission: this is how germs transfer from person to person or from surface to person.

In order to ensure the well-being and safety of all those who live in care facilities, staff must take proper precautions when dealing with germs. With so many people living together, there’s always a potential risk for exposure or infection due to breaches like dirty hands, leading to one person picking up an illness and spreading it to others.

Regular handwashing is one of the most effective methods for reducing infection rates, but it’s not enough to ensure a safe and sanitary care facility. While proper handwashing can drastically reduce harmful bacteria such as MRSA or CPE (Clostridium perfringens), facilities must take many more precautions to ensure residents stay healthy. Our team at Apollo Bath recognizes this need and implements state-of-the-art infection control into our products. 

The Shield™ Splash Guard

Protect yourself from infection and disease during waste or fluid disposal.

Splashing caused by waste disposal is just plain gross, not to mention being a huge risk for infection. Apollo’s patented Shield™ Splash Guard is the most effective, efficient, and economical product on the market to protect yourself from pathogens, bacteria, and germs during the disposal process.

The Shield™ Splash Guard simply affixes to the sink rim to protect your face and body from splashing caused by waste being poured down the drain. Made of a synthetic copolymer material, the splash guard flexes for staff comfort and is transparent for the most visibility. The Shield™ Splash Guard is extremely sturdy and should withstand years of rigorous use.


The Shield™ Splash Guard is easy to install and maintain.
