Recently, a just-opened Ohio hospital had a Legionnaires’ disease outbreak that resulted in eight illnesses and one death. One month later, an Atlanta Hotel had an outbreak that resulted in 11 guests diagnosed with Legionnaires’ disease. This is a life-threatening form of pneumonia that occurs when the Legionella bacterium is inhaled. Hotels and hospitals are at a high risk of having the Legionella bacterium in its water systems, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Showers are one of the top locations that breed Legionella bacteria.
This is why we are introducing the Auto-drain Shower System to our Patient Care line of products.
The Auto-drain Shower System is the first-of-its-kind shower that automatically drains standing water from the diverter pipe and hand-spray hose, helping to prevent the growth of harmful waterborne pathogens, like Legionella.
Why choose the Auto-Drain Shower System?
Automatically drains standing water in the column between the shower valve and showerhead - removing stagnant water that causes illness.
Automatically drains the water column between the shower valve and the hand-held shower spray
Comes in three versions - fixed shower head, hand spray with hose, or retrofit kit for existing shower hose.
