How to CleanThe McMonty by medihood

After Use

01.McMonty hoods (the PVC component) are able to remain with patients for the entirety of their stay.

02.The hoods are single use.

03.Once a patient has been discharged or is deemed to no longer be infectious and therefore no longer required the use of The McMonty, the hood will need to be disposed of.

04.Hoods can be recycled in PVC recycling bins (facility dependent) but will need to be sanitized and have white vinyl tabs and Velcro strip removed (either by cutting with scissors or tearing) before doing so.

Cleaning

01.Perform a terminal clean in the patient bed area at the end of patient use (eg. perform the clean when the bed has been vacated by the patient).

02.Always clean with full PPE as per local policies/guidelines. Methodically clean all surfaces, inside and out, including items such as the fan/filter housing and the power cord.

03.A full clean should take one person approx. 5-10 minutes

04.It is recommended that cleaning and disinfecting take place in one process.

05.From extensive testing it has been determined that quaternary ammonium products (eg. Clinell wipes) work best as they dry quickly and are readily available.

06.Quaternary ammonium products may leave a slight cloudy/smeared appearance. To remove this, a >70% alcohol solution wiped over with a cloth is recommended. This will help to lift any residue and leave the surfaces visibly clear.

Recommended Cleaning Products

01.Combined cleaning and disinfecting wipes that have listed claims of viricidal activity against SARS-CoV-2. Eg. Clinell, a quaternary ammonium solution.

02.Actichlor Plus at 1000 ppm. Use if the patient has a multidrug resistant organism or Clostridium Difficile. Allow sufficient contact time to ensure disinfection as per the manufacturer’s recommendation.

03.Hospital grade neutral detergent clean, followed by a chlorine based solution at 1000 ppm.
