ALPHARETTA, Ga.— January 7, 2019 — Halyard, a leading global provider of solutions for the prevention of healthcare-associated infections across acute care and non-acute care settings, today announced the availability of the latest in its portfolio of personal protective equipment (PPE)—COVER MAX* full-coverage Surgical Caps. Two different versions of the Surgical Caps are available—including one with CAPTURE* Technology—to accommodate different hair lengths. They were designed with the latest recommendations from AORN in mind to help prevent surgical site infections caused by microorganisms shed from the skin and hair of perioperative personnel.
“Nobody understands the needs and challenges of the healthcare industry better than those on the front lines of care delivery every day,” said Greg Metcalf, Halyard Global Director for Gloves and Apparel. “We are proud to have had the opportunity to work closely with our customer Spectrum Health, leveraging our shared goals for innovation, to better meet the needs of perioperative clinicians and help protect the patients relying on them for care.”
