The Association for the Healthcare Environment (AHE) recently announced that Ecolab is the first environmental services industry leader to be presented with AHE’s new Innovation Award. Ecolab received the award for OxyCide Disinfectant Cleaner, a non-bleach sporicide developed for daily use in healthcare settings.

OxyCide is proven effective in killing a broad spectrum of harmful bacteria and viruses, including Clostridium difficile (C. difficile) spores in three minutes and multi-drug resistant organisms and viruses in five minutes or less, helping hospitals to reduce the risk of healthcare-associated infections (HAIs).

In selecting OxyCide for the award, AHE cited the product’s multiple uses, efficacy, material compatibility and reduction in environmental impact. AHE highlighted how OxyCide offers a paradigm shift in cleaning and disinfection practices as well as a measurable contribution to improved outcomes in the healthcare environment.

The Innovation Award was developed by the AHE Industry Advisory Task Force to recognize and increase awareness of improved products, processes and technology advancements that empower individuals to improve measured outcomes in the healthcare environment. Any AHA member hospital, AHE affiliated local chapter, AHE professional active member, AHE associate member and any other individual or business seeking to improve outcomes in the healthcare environment were eligible to submit an innovation for consideration.
