Dateline – Golden Group International, Ltd. announced today that it has been awarded a 36-month group purchasing contract with Premier, the Premier healthcare alliance, for its Diaper Changing Station category. October 01, 2012, the new agreement allows Premier members, at their discretion, to take advantage of special pricing and terms pre-negotiated by Premier for S.A.C. environmentally friendly; Baby Diaper Disposal, Sanitary Napkin and Tampon Disposal and Adult Incontinence Disposal products.
Jackie Transue, President of Golden Group International, Ltd. stated today, “We are extremely pleased to have been awarded this contract by Premier and to be able to offer products that matter and serve the needs of the people who are cared for and work in healthcare facilities. We are very proud of our S.A.C. products not just because they reduce costs, reduce maintenance and reduce cross contamination concerns but because they are also environmentally friendly”.
The S.A.C. disposal bags and dispensers for the disposal of baby diapers, sanitary napkins, tampons and adult incontinence products are degradable, single use, convenient, discreet, sealable, personal disposal bags. They target the prevention of cross contamination and are an important step to protect patients, building occupants and janitorial staff from infections.
The S.A.C. bags are superior to wax bag liners commonly used in sanitary napkin disposal bins, large waste receptacles or bags for diapers because they are single use and sealable which greatly reduce odor, visible waste and the occurrence of cross contamination from products that could be considered infectious, such as blood, urine, feces and other bodily fluids.
The bags are dispensed with custom S.A.C. dispensers in an easy to reach, convenient location. In addition, the use of the products helps to eliminate backups, keep restrooms and patient areas cleaner, more sanitary and smelling better. The system is economical. It is much more cost effective to provide this solution than to pay for costly plumbing related problems, loss of use, flooding, extra chemicals to wipe down the bins, extra toilet paper to wrap up used products, extra labor time to clean and disinfect patient areas and restrooms or deal with health threats, additional illnesses or infections caused by the improper handling of these wastes. Infection control, prevention of cross-contamination and overall impression of the healthcare facilities are extremely important to the success of the organization. We understand that you are running a healthcare facility and there is no room for error when it comes to restroom maintenance and hygiene. Every single day, the threat of illness, discomfort, loss of use, damage, and dissatisfaction threatens your patients, your customers, your employees and your reputation. Using the S.A.C. products will help to solve the issues relating to the safe, cost effective and sanitary disposal of baby diapers, feminine hygiene items and adult incontinence products in your facilities.
