Using CARES Act Funds to Enhance Staff & Patient Safety

Learn How You Can Solve Long-term Infection Control Challenges Before Funding Expires on Dec 31st.

Background on CARES Act Funding

What is the CARES Act?

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) is $2.2 trillion emergency relief fund that was passed in March 2020. Over $130 billion  has been provided to hospitals and healthcare systems with $19.6 billion dedicated specifically towards the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA).

The Department of Health and Human Services Created a fourth phase of distributions due to a lack of applicants in the first three phases, which resulted in an excess of $24 billion of the money allocated for the Provider Relief Fund.

How to access Funding?

Funding is scheduled to be distributed July 1, 2021 to Dec 31, 2021, for money to be spent by the end of 2022. Our partner, Standard Communications (a SDVOSB) has extensive experience with VA facilities and can assist in the procurement process of these funds to support your staff and patient hygiene challenges.

Funding can be accessed through normal facility procurement as well as through ECAT purchases. Please get in touch via the form below and our VA partner will be happy to assist.

Make Your Facility Safer Today. Prepare for Tomorrow.

CARES Act funding can be used to purchase equipment that will reduce risks during the pandemic and address long-term challenges.

The correct infection control solution can save your facility money, improve staff workflow, and boost staff/patient hygiene well into the future.

Device Hygiene + Hand Hygiene: Two Problems, One Solution.

Staff, visitors and patients are using mobile devices every single day. They wash or sanitize their hands, then immediately use these devices.

Problem #1

Pathogens on Mobile Devices

An avg of 1 in 4 hospital mobile devices are contaminated with pathogenic bacteria. 

Staff and visitor devices are the third hand we never wash.

Problem #2

Hand Hygiene

Increasing hand hygiene compliance is proven to reduce the risk of HAIs. 

However, changing behaviour is very difficult, and anything that adds steps to the workflow will be resisted.
