Various disease-associated bacteria are transferred from medical curtains to patients every time they touch the curtains, the privacy curtains are quickly contaminated with infectious bacteria.

Are you aware of transmission of bacteria?

Medical curtains for patient privacy have shown to be a source of harboring antibiotic-resistant bacteria. More and more hospitals and clinics are replacing all privacy curtains in healthcare settings with hygienic folding screens to prevent the spread of microorganisms.

Several studies show that patient privacy curtains carry large numbers of bacteria. When staff touch the medical curtains, they risk transferring these bacteria to other patients. Even if the curtains are washed or changed regularly, it does not help a great deal as they quickly become contaminated with infectious bacteria again.
