It is very scary to think that when you are admitted to the hospital for one medical problem, you could leave with another. Many patients actually become infected with another disease or illness while they are in the hospital for treatment involving antibiotics. Using antibiotics to treat another illness will increase the likelihood that you will acquire an infection, especially one that is caused by Clostridium difficile. This makes hospital workers and doctors very interested in how to kill C. diff in hospitals. OdoroxAir has the answer, Hydroxyl Processors/Hydroxyl Generators.
Every person is full of bacteria and while most are harmless, there are some unhealthy bacteria in your body that mostly stay put and don’t cause problems. Your gastrointestinal, or GI, tract is full of bacteria and has between 500 to 1,000 different species. Most of these bacteria are in the colon or large intestine. When located in the right part of your body, these bacteria, such as E. coli, Klebsiella, Enterococcus, and Klebsiella, are harmless but if they get into your bloodstream or tissue they can be very dangerous and make you very sick. They work hard to detox chemicals in your body and protect you against pathogens such as C. diff.
People want to know how to remove C. diff from medical locations because it causes most of the infectious diarrhea in the US. When a person takes antibiotics, some of the good bacteria in the gut is killed, leaving room for bad bacteria such as C. diff to take over.
This is a bacteria that can thrive where there isn’t any oxygen. It has a lifecycle similar to Clostridia, which causes gas gangrene, tetanus, and botulism, where it is actively dividing and then transforms into spores. The spores are inert and don’t cause disease but are incredibly difficult to kill, no matter how much you wonder how to eradicate C.Diff bacteria in nursing homes . People who have C. difficile shed the spores into their feces where they can spread to others, utensils, and even food and are swallowed by another person. In the GI tract, these spores come to life and are generally stopped by good bacteria. However, if a person has been on antibiotics, then the C. diff may be able to grow and multiply.
Generally, people who are in medical facilities for long periods of time are at the highest risk of getting C. diff, especially if they have been treated with antibiotics. Patients above 65, ones who have serious illnesses, and those who have been on antibiotics for a long time are at the highest risk.
Watery diarrhea three times a day with cramping, nausea, and fever are all signs that you need medical care. A doctor can diagnose this medical problem by the odor of the diarrhea and with fecal testing. Treatment and Recovery from C. Diff Stopping the antibiotic can help the person heal from C. diff and another one will need to be used in its place. In extreme cases, patients may need surgery.
Most patients will improve in under two weeks with proper treatment, but around one-fifth of all patients relapse. Spores that are left in the body can resume creating toxins. Relapse is also partly due to the fact that there is more antibiotic-resistant C. diff than ever before.
It’s important to prevent C. diff from spreading. Diagnosing it quickly and correctly and using the right precautions for care will help to stop its spread. Patients should be placed in a private room with a private bathroom and medical personnel need proper training on how to prevent the spread of C. diff. Because C. diff is so dangerous, it is important to work hard to remove C.Diff in health care facilities. The spores are resistant to alcohol and as more people treat the problem with antibiotics, it is becoming resistant to them as well. Using an Odorox Hydroxyl Generator air machine is a great treatment option as it will kill, remove, and eliminate any spores in the air or on surfaces. This will help to stop the spread of C. diff and can easily prevent more people from becoming sick with this infection.
Hydroxyls Remove Multiple Odors
It was with great skepticism when I first inquired about your Hydroxyl Generators since I've heard of so many products claiming to eliminate odors. A friend with a DKI business in North Carolina originally sparked my interest in the product. I had knowledge of it but was always hesitant because of the 'too good to be true' adage. His recommendation of the product prompted me to make the call.
We received the Boss and Boss XL3 in time to try it on its first job which happened to be sewer. A noticeable difference was evident by our staff and by the owners of the structure. After a thorough cleaning and sanitizing the Boss XL3 eliminated any residual odors.
Next the generators were put on a kitchen fire job with similar results. As we were working there with the machine running we noticed a drastic reduction in odor. After all was cleaned the generator ran for one more day and the odor was nonexistent.
A protein fire followed, then a suicide cleanup, a skunk spray in a home and finally 2 more sewer jobs. I am thrilled to report excellent results in each and every one of those jobs. Our latest client described the sewer odor in her home as 'a million times better' after the introduction of the Hydroxyl generator.
This is definitely going to eliminate the need for some of the other so called deodorizing machines. I am next looking forward to trying the MDU unit in the Health Care Industry. We are very excited about these products and their uses.

Dear Odorox Team,
On Thursday, July 2, we had Odorox Environmental come to our Hotel and deploy the use of an XL3 in one of our smoking rooms that we have set aside for our smoking guests. In general, these dedicated smoking rooms maintain an odor of smoke that is very difficult to eradicate through our current cleaning efforts which consist of treating rooms with labor, chemicals and an ozone machine.
Much to my amazement the room that was treated with using nothing but the XL 3 and its' Hydroxyl technology had absolutely no trace of smoke smell whatsoever in less than 24 hours! Even the drapes, carpet and bed linens were all devoid of any trace of smoke odor. Needless to say, I was beyond impressed.
In addition, the machine allowed us the capability of removing other odors from wherever else we used it, such as eating areas, laundry areas, hallways and any other place we deemed important to our Guest satisfaction.
That machine was like a miracle! In my 20 plus years in Hotel operations I can say I have not come across anything quite like this.
