Ronald McDonald House

Ronald McDonald House is an international organization that provides a place for immune-compromised children undergoing hospital treatments to stay with their families.  The Charleston South Carolina facility was chosen because of its proximity to the Medical University of South Carolina to facilitate bacterial sampling pre- and post-installation.  Another objective of this project was to engage the supply chain and encourage the manufacture of components made from antimicrobial copper alloys.  All of the components installed were made of EPA registered alloys.  Thus, this project serves as an example of what other public and private facilities could do to control infectious disease spread in their facility.  Funding for the installation was provided by the members of the Copper Development Association and the International Copper Association.

*EPA required statement:  Laboratory testing shows that, when cleaned regularly, antimicrobial copper surfaces kill greater than 99.9% of the following bacteria within 2 hours of exposure: MRSA, VRE, Staphylococcus aureus, Enterobacter aerogenes, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and E. coli O157:H7. Antimicrobial copper surfaces are a supplement to and not a substitute for standard infection control practices and have been shown to reduce microbial contamination, but do not necessarily prevent cross contamination or infections; users must continue to follow all current infection control practices.
