Curos disinfecting caps are a green disinfecting cap that help improve hospital infection control protocols and enhance the patient's experience by ensuring all IV and needle-free devices are clean and protected.
Curos disinfecting caps are available in two presentations. The Curos Drip-strip provides clinicians with an accessible dispenser which can be hung on an IV pole or other convenient bedside location so that nurses have easy access to consistent and reliable passive disinfection during every IV access. Curos single presentation Port Protector offers all the same benefits in terms of the reduction in CRBSI for patients in the non-acute setting.
Curos disinfecting caps have a visible and vibrant colour, which assures high visibility compliance with NHS and other hospital infection control protocols.
