Spring cleaning, a safer way

Spring is here and with it a time of renewal. The time for spring cleaning is at hand, however, it’s become apparent that limiting exposure to various chemicals, toxins and pollutants is also important. We’ve learned much about the detrimental effects various chemicals have on our health. Many cleaning products marketed as “green,” “natural” or “eco-friendly” actually contain chemicals that are known carcinogens, endocrine-disruptors or lung and skin irritants. For instance, awareness around the negative reproductive and development effects of BPA (bisphenol A) in plastics and other unregulated chemicals like phthalates is growing, there is still a lot of work to be done to make sure that our health is protected.

Where Has all the Freshwater Gone?

Did you know that freshwater makes up a very small fraction of all water on the Earth? Nearly 70 percent of the world is covered by water, but only 2.5 percent of it is fresh, and of that just 1 percent is easily accessible. U.S. hospitals use an average of 570 gallons of water per staffed bed, per day...

Cleaning Boosters that Actually Work

This article in Reader’s Digest “8 Secret Ingredients You Should Be Adding to Your Laundry” is an inspiration. Right from the first statement “Don't toss in a laundry pod and think you're done." When you take a moment to unpack the premise that any detergent will do, it makes a lot of sense not just for laundry at home, but for reprocessing contaminated devices in SPD, too. Life in the SPD is complicated, but your cleaning regimen doesn’t have to be, nor does your detergent need to be.

Misinformation... It’s Many Forms

As the title for this week’s blog says, “Misinformation comes to us in many forms” and it’s not just through social media, though social media is the superhighway or Autobahn of misinformation with no speed limits. Take for example our blog from last week discussing “flushable” wipes. When the product label says...

We all use wipes at home and at work, and many of us assume that they are flushable. In fact, many brands simply state “Flushable” on the label. Disposable wipes are made for baby care, hand washing, feminine and other personal cleansing, and for makeup removal. In healthcare facilities, wipes are used to apply caustic chemicals for cleaning and disinfecting surfaces and even medical devices. Please do not use them on our SteriTite containers.

Today, Case Medical received a gift from the Chemical Footprint Project (CFP) just in time for the New Year. We have participated in CFP's surveys before, but this past year we went beyond even our expectations with a score of 93.67 out of a possible 103 points. We were one of only seven companies to exceed the 80 point threshold.

Wishing You a Great 2022 Thanksgiving

Celebrate your best Thanksgiving ever!

Remember the Thanksgiving story you learned in school — how, way back when, Pilgrims and Indians got together at one giant dinner table and ate turkey and stuffing and green beans covered in Campbell's mushroom soup? And then there was peace on Earth?

Actually,  it was the Wampanoag in 1621 who helped the first wave of Puritans arriving on our shores, showing them how to plant crops, forage for wild foods and basically survive.

Trailblazing Women in Manufacturing

Traditionally, women were trained to be teachers, nurses, members of the helping profession, supporting their male leaders. Then things changed during WWII when Rosie the Riveter was called by our country in crisis to contribute to manufacturing necessary equipment when our male population went to war...

Life's way too short to waste time on things you'd rather say “no” to. It's like a train on a tight schedule in the blink of an eye it'll pass you by. Case Medical’s thirty years in health care has been pretty remarkable, given economic ups and downs, supply chain challenges, two floods, a pandemic, and sometimes competitive gaslighting. With that said, Case Medical remains resilient, forward looking, and optimistic.
