PDC Healthcare to Display Its Line of Safe-D-Covers(TM) for Detector and Cassette Protection at the 2014 APIC Conference

Covers Are Specially Designed to Protect Expensive X-Ray Equipment From Fluid Penetration

VALENCIA, CA--(Marketwired - May 21, 2014) - PDC Healthcare, the global leader of innovative identification solutions, will exhibit its new expanded line of Safe-D-Covers™ for cassettes and detectors at the 2014 Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) Conference, in booth #1550, from June 7 to 9, in Anaheim, CA. APIC is the leading organization for infection preventionists with members including nurses, physicians and public health professionals. 

PDC Healthcare's Safe-D-Covers™ help organizations protect their X-ray equipment by providing a disposable, protective barrier between the detector or cassette and the patient. Safe-D-Covers™, with a ziplock closure, virtually eliminate the chance of fluids coming in contact with a detector or cassette. Unlike pillowcases or trash bags, tear-resistant Safe-D-Covers™ are specifically manufactured to securely fit X-ray equipment, saving caregivers' time and hassle from dealing with extra material to tuck or push under patients. The covers are disposable and do not require laundering, which has been identified as one of the six areas of concerns, according to a study by the CDC.

"When a cassette or detector becomes soiled, caregivers are required to disinfect them after each use and wait 10 minutes before the next X-ray, which is time consuming at busy hospitals," said Sara Stickle, Marketing Manager for PDC Healthcare. "Safe-D-Covers™ with ziplocks are much more efficient because they seal, allowing technicians to move quickly from patient to patient while protecting the cassette or detector from fluid."

PDC Healthcare will also exhibit its new DRX detector Safe-D-Covers™, extra thick and easy slide Safe-D-Covers™ in a variety of sizes and closure options. An assortment of PDC Healthcare's equipment protection products will also be on display including specimen transportation devices, biohazard bags and more.
