Mattress covers in healthcare facilities are frequently damaged. Studies have shown that more than 26% of mattresses are damaged. The FDA has warned that damaged mattress covers pose a risk of cross contamination and patient infection. To reduce patient safety risks from damaged mattress covers and ensure compliance with survey requirements, healthcare facilities should implement a Mattress Inspection and Repair Program. “The Imperative of Mattress Cover Integrity for Survey Readiness and Infection Prevention” talks about the ways to assess and address mattress issues, with punctures, wear and tears, and how to alleviate them in a cost-effective manner.
