Meadowood Manor has been using the Cascades Antibacterial hand towels for over a year.
Staff have commented that they like the soft feel of the towelling. Staff are aware of the antibacterial factor of the towelling and I have heard from some staff that they were not ill last year during the flu and cold season and they feel the towelling does appear to contribute to them not getting ill.
There are many factors being implemented in the Personal Care Home such as an increased awareness on hand washing, more use of hand sanitizer and the use of Cascades Antibacterial towels. Last year there were no widespread flu or cold outbreaks in the facility which does indicate the success of the above factors.
