Focused Post Acute Care Partners Implements in All Long Term Care Communities Customized Disinfectant Equipment and Supplies Registered Effective Protection Against COVID-19

Innovative MediClean Pro Proven Application Method in Disinfection Registered by the Environmental Protection Agency

(Fort Worth, Texas) – Focused Post Acute Care Partners (FPACP), announced its investment in MediClean Pro equipment and supplies, a customized treatment protocol registered safe and effective by the federal government’s leading environmental protection agency to treat areas potentially exposed to the Coronavirus. The company recently implemented MediClean Pro in all of its long term care communities to disinfect surfaces and provide maximum effectiveness and germ sanitization.

“Prior to the pandemic, Focused Care invested in several measures to reduce the rate of infection among the vulnerable residents to whom we provide care, and in light of this highly contagious and unpredictable virus, we have stepped up our efforts and our investment in protecting the health and safety of our residents and team members,” said Mark McKenzie, founder of FPACP, a Texas-based skilled nursing care company with 31 communities largely in rural and small towns in east and west Texas and along the Gulf Coast. “MediClean Pro is a top-of-the-line disinfecting method that we are applying in all Focused Care communities to ensure we are protecting, as best we can, against the spread of COVID-19.”

All Focused Care communities employ a strict and extensive sterilization protocol that covers disinfecting of equipment and supplies, resident rooms and general traffic areas. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) uses criteria to register disinfectants to treat against COVID-19 that:

  • Demonstrate efficacy against SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19)
  • Demonstrate efficacy against a virus that is harder to kill than SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19)

Focused Care invested substantially in reducing the rate of infection in all its long term care communities two years ago when it implemented Theraworx, a topical immune health system that harnesses the power of a patient’s skin defense system to manage healthcare associated risks and supports the antimicrobial barrier of the skin. Since using the sanitizing product, Urinary Tract Infections (UTI), a common infection among seniors, has dropped in Focused Care residents company-wide to 1.5% compared to the national average of 2.8% for skilled nursing residents.

Moreover, Focused Care launched a pilot program in four of its long term care communities in January this year implementing innovative technology that will enhance the sleep experience of residents by not only protecting seniors from common infections acquired from mattresses and pillows in health care settings, but increasing the comfort with high quality, long lasting mattresses free of chemicals. The company also purchased Casper beds, known for their comfort and superior quality, while partnering with Clean Sleep, that uses a patented process of UVC light, dry steam, infrared heat and ozone generation to clean and sanitize mattresses. The technology reduces cleaning times, utilizes physical properties for disinfection and reduces cross contamination.

“We are continuing to develop strategies that can bring us closer to virus free communities, but also must depend on every one who walks through our doors to be responsible and take the utmost precautions,” noted McKenzie. “Much is required of the skilled nursing sector always, but those requirements multiplied exponentially as the result of this pandemic. We understand the critical nature of this on a very personal level as we are on the frontline caring for seniors. We entreat all those who must be on site with us for business and safety reasons, to help us be as effective as possible.”
