Encompass Group And Gordon & Gordon Launch New Antibacterial Product Aimed At Reducing Hospital Acquired Infections

McDONOUGH, Ga. -- Encompass Group LLC, a manufacturer and marketer of medical textiles, has joined with Gordon & Gordon, an Irvine, Calif. company, to market BacterArmor, an antibacterial product designed to reduce deadly noscomial infections, also known as hospital acquired infections.

Healthcare providers continue to recover from The New York Times article outlining Medicare’s new change in payment policy, specifically noting they will no longer cover cost due to infections acquired after a patient is admitted into a healthcare facility.         

Encompass and Gordon & Gordon are pioneering a new prevention program that will assist healthcare providers with solutions laid out in a comprehensive package that will include training, innovative products, and onsite technical assistance. 

“In 2006 1.9 Million patients admitted into a US hospital acquired a potentially preventable nosocomial infection,” says Christian Arnold, Encompass’ vice president of business development.

Hospital staff members are under pressure to reduce the infection rate and need tools in the fight.   

“The gap between hospital staff members feeling unable to impact results and patient infection rates rising will be replaced by creating a bridge of technology we intend to help build,” said Rebecca Walton president of Gordon & Gordon.

Encompass, with its current healthcare client base, combined with Gordon & Gordon product technology and expertise is a natural for all healthcare providers who want to benefit with measurable results.   

Encompass Group LLC is a manufacturer and marketer of healthcare items. Gordon & Gordon, Inc is a privately held woman-owned business specializing in marketing innovative chemical solutions for fabrics including anti-microbial laundry additives.
