By reducing infections, you can help decrease hospital readmissions. View the CDC’s Guide to Infection Prevention in Outpatient Settings

Infection Risks in the Rehab Space

Rehab Infection Prevention is a Priority in All In-Patient and Out-Patient Settings

Moist Heat Therapy

Infection Risk:
Moisture, inaccurate temperature control, porous, reusable packs and improperly maintained tubs foster bacteria growth.

Reduce the Risk:
Maintain hot packs according to the manufacture guidelines in non-corrosive units; use heat-sealed, non-porous packs or disposable barriers for each patient.

Mobility & Transfer

Infection Risk:
Gait belts, cushions and wheelchair surfaces harbor pathogens that can transfer from patient to patient.

Reduce the Risk:
Choose items with built-in antimicrobial protection or those made from impermeable materials. Sanitize gait belts, cushions and wheelchair surfaces after each use, or assign one item per patient.


Infection Risk:
Bacteria can proliferate in bulk containers of gel when bottle tips come in direct contact with patients’ skin or on self-adhesive electrode surfaces.

Reduce the Risk:
Utilize single-use ultrasound gel packages; label reusable electrodes for use on one patient, or choose single-use, disposable products.

Exercise Supplies

Infection Risk:
Sharing items like band, balls, putty and mats is a recipe for cross-contamination.

Reduce the Risk:
Limit consumable items to single-patient use. Implement proper cleaning protocols for all shared products.

Manual Therapy

Infection Risk:
Tears in upholstery can house pathogens that normal disinfection can’t reach.

Reduce the Risk:
Monitor upholstery for rips; repair and replace when necessary. Use barriers and disinfect surfaces between patients.

Cardio Equipment

Infection Risk:
Cardio machines are major transfer points for germs.

Reduce the Risk:
Wipe down equipment with disinfectant between each use. Encourage patients to reduce exposure with a towel barrier.

Rehab Infection Prevention Tips

The Goal of the Rehab Infection Prevention is to Make Your Facility Safe from Infection

Establish Disinfection Protocols to Prevent Cross Contamination

  • Design protocols for consistent use of alcohol-based hand rub.
  • Use EPA-registered cleaners with label claims for use in healthcare.
  • Clean reusable equipment between patients and maintain according to manufacturer's instructions.

Opt for Antimicrobial Ultrasound Gel

  • Antimicrobial ultrasound gel is a quaternary ammonium solution containing the active ingredient Benzalkonium Chloride It's designed to effectively destroy o brood spectrum of pathogens and eliminate many gram positive and gram negative pathogens.

  • The universally simple and cost effective solution to prevent the spread of infections.

Choose & Use Materials Wisely

  • Select seamless products made of metal, copper and hard plastics instead of fabric or wood.
  • Monitor, repair and replace damaged items as soon as possible.
  • Use covers and barriers.

Make Sure Moist Heat Essentials Don't Become a Breeding Ground

  • Use non-corrosive heat therapy units like HydraTherm™ to prevent the formation of rust, mold & mildew.
  • Use heat-sealed packs like HydraHeat™ that feature a bacteria-resistant outer material.
