Superbug protection from ozone

4th December 2007

Foxearth Nursing Home in Suffolk is attempting to combat superbug infections by using ozone in their laundry processes.

Ozone acts to naturally disinfect bedding and linen when it is put into the water used by the hospital's washing machines. It can kill both the C diff and MRSA infections.

James Cantrell, home manager, said they were confident in the new system: "The result is that everything being laundered becomes sterile so residents are more protected from infections."
