Lincolnshire hospital fits copper touch surfaces

Wide range of copper touch surface items installed in a Lincolnshire hospital: bed rails, over-bed table, visitor’s chair arms, light switches, electrical sockets, cabinet handles, door handles, grab rails, hand-rails, taps.

ENT consultant Mr Michael Oko was so impressed by copper’s intrinsic antimicrobial properties that he paid out of his own pocket for a room used for sleep apnoea trials to be fitted with copper-alloy items, and has started fund-raising to get more rooms fitted-out. What a champion!
