ORANGEBURG, N.Y., Nov. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- PDI, provider of infection prevention education, clinical support and products, has been awarded a contract for surface disinfection from HealthTrust, effective November 1, 2012. The contract makes the full line of Sani-Cloth® Germicidal Disposable Wipes, designed to service all areas of the healthcare facility, available to HealthTrust members.

"This new agreement will afford PDI the opportunity to work with HealthTrust's diverse membership, aid them in reducing healthcare-associated infections and control associated costs," said Dan Marsh, executive vice president, PDI.

PDI Sani-Cloth Germicidal Disposable Wipes is the number one brand of surface disinfecting wipes in healthcare and includes Super Sani-Cloth®, Sani-Cloth® AF3, and Sani-Cloth® Bleach. The product portfolio offers a complete environmental hygiene solution for house-wide and situational use with the appropriate mix of aggressive clinically-relevant efficacy claims. Effective against 27 different microorganisms in two minutes, Super Sani-Cloth® is ideal for daily use in fast-paced environments.

The Sani-Cloth Environmental Hygiene System provides users with a broad range of intermediate-level surface disinfectants that address all surface disinfection needs. Equally important to the products are PDI's compliance tools, optional dispensing accessories, ongoing clinical support and comprehensive implementation training for staff.
