Surgeon creates drape that may help control infections
Indianapolis Star, October 28, 2008
An Indianapolis company has invented a covering that reduces the potential for colonoscopies to spread infection, and it now is being used or tested by 100 hospitals across the country. The drapes are attractive to medical facilities that now are faced with Medicare and other insurers no longer paying for treatment of a preventable infection. As word has spread, sales have soared: The 2-year-old company saw a 300% increase in sales last quarter.
