Presents.. more than just a cleanable pull…. Wilshire Works Solutions
Unhygienic Kling™, nylon pull cords and string pulls remain on many North American hospital facility fixtures despite C-Dif, MRSA and the shocking experience of the 2004 Toronto SARS outbreak Canada recorded 375 probable and suspected cases of SARS. Two nurses and a doctor were among the 44 people who succumbed to the disease How many thousands die annually due to HAIs? Simply unbelievable!
Traditional pulls were never designed to be effectively cleaned or sanitized !
Who’s at risk of acquiring or spreading an infection from a traditional pull? Patients and residents Nurses and personal care workers Doctors and technical staff Cleaning and support staff Volunteers Visitors, especially family members
The status quo of tolerating traditional pulls in any healthcare facility is NOT acceptable
Sanipull® and SuperSanipull RTU™ are engineered cleanable pull solutions for over bed light and nurse call fixtures using US made plastic resins a solution
Sanipull is a user-friendly, retrofit ribbon-profile pull system very different from all other aftermarket and OEM ‘cleanable’ pull cords Bottom Line: Sanipull helps save lives !
Why should implementing SANIPULL be a PRIORITY for ALL healthcare facility managers?
Engineered Sanipull provides many benefits for healthcare facilities, staff, patients and residents... Just the facts...
Sanipull effectively protects over bed light pull switches and nurse call fixtures from over force pull damage
Sanipull’s switch saver design saves facility money by eliminating work orders for fixture repair or replacement The competition Egaad, another broken switch!!!
Expense Factoid The average cost of a work order associated with replacing ONE broken pull switch is $100 ! A 400-bed acute care hospital saved $10,000 every year by not having to replace broken light pull switches and fixtures torn off walls...

Sanipull’s anti-ligature / anti-strangulation modified ribbon enhances safety Holes punched every 6 inches provide safety tear away zones that break at 29+/- 2 lbs @ 74°F
Plastic pulls are a step forward for cleanability but fails to address other risks that are not often considered Most nurse call manufacturers now use OEM plastic pull cords on their pull stations Risk mitigation
are hard to grasp and pull for users with arthritis or disabilities (especially those in rehabilitation facilities) have the potential to cause injury and infection if pulled across ‘paper skin’ of elderly residents are difficult to see for visually impaired people, especially under low light conditions OEM and aftermarket plastic pull cords…
effective choking device for assault or suicide can be knotted, therefore potential use as a ligature (tying) device poses a strangulation risk due to entanglement A knotted pull cord will not be cleaned and no one will bother untying the knot
Sanipull mitigates the risk of a Sentinel event Sanipull anti-ligature modified ribbon breaks away at 29 +/-2 lbs force Cord ligatures become buried under neck skin fold
Due diligence and sourcing the safest available product is a facility’s best defence against legal, financial and reputation repercussions that a Sentinel event may bring.
Saving lives by reducing risk is what Sanipull is all about!
