Blood Cleanup in Atlanta Elementary School

One of the sanitation workers employed at a school near Atlanta, GA arrived early to work and was reportedly stabbed and sexually assaulted by a nearby prowler. The incident produced widely dispersed contaminants extending from the main entrance, through the office space and main halls, and finally to a rear exit in the back of the facility. An array of clerical appliances and structural elements (to include walls and flooring) were extensively soiled with blood and finger-print dust as left behind by the authorities. The condition of the school thereafter posed a significant risk for bloodborne pathogens transmission and psychological trauma to several hundred young students.

A primary focus on staff-accessibility and readiness allowed for an immediate dispatch of the Biotrauma Service Team. The team arrived within drive-time (1 hour) and was ready to begin work prior to scene-release as discerned by the investigators. A protease enzyme treatment was applied to the soiled areas of the facility and was allowed to settle in for 30 minutes for optimal efficiency. Two Bio-Recovery Technicians conducted a thorough scrub-down under the supervision of a Master Technician, and later applied hospital-grade disinfectant Virkon (EPA Reg. # 71654-7) to the affected areas and adjacent sectors of the school. Lastly, our Master Technician carried out a detailed area-inspection via worklamp to fully eliminate exposure possibility amongst facility staff and students. The manpower and technology employed by our Service Team successfully kept facility down-time at 7 hours, which equated to one school/business day. A Certificate of Treatment was subsequently issued to the Facilities Director and served as a transfer of liability from the Elementary School to Biotrauma concerning any post-treatment exposure incidents. Presently, the school educates some 539 healthy young students.

Days Inn and Suites, Norcross
[/reFader] The Days Inn and Suites is one of many hospitality establishments competing for business along Peachtree Industrial Road in Norcross, Georgia in the Metro Atlanta Area. Because of its placement in relation to I-85 and I-285, this hotel experiences a high rate of occupancy and requires full service capacity in order to achieve maximum revenue per day. A distraught guest rented a suite, laid down in the bath tub, and committed suicide via firearm thereafter. The blast produced a soiled area not only within the tub itself, but the surrounding areas of the restroom as well. The angle of the bullet trajectory was straight downwards which produced a hole near (but not connecting to) the drain. This caused biological contaminants to seep down into the second hole, which led to the foundation.

A primary focus on staff-accessibility and readiness allowed for an immediate dispatch of the Biotrauma Service Team from their Atlanta office. The Atlanta suicide cleanup team arrived within drive time (15 minutes), prescribed the course of action, and immediately began the decontamination process. A protease enzyme treatment was applied to the soiled areas of the facility and was allowed to settle in for 30 minutes for optimal efficiency. Our Master Bio-Recovery Technician then conducted a thorough scrub-down, and later applied hospital-grade disinfectant Virkon (EPA Reg. # 71654-7) to the soiled area and surrounding vicinity. The same process was applied to underneath the tub once it was removed in addition to the hole produced by the bullet. Lastly, our Master Technician carried out a detailed area-inspection via worklamp to fully eliminate exposure possibility amongst future suite guests. The manpower and technology employed by our Service Team successfully kept room downtime at 4 hours, with no facility down-time. A Certificate of Treatment was subsequently issued to the Hotel Manager and served as a transfer of liability from Days Inn and Suites, Norcross to Biotrauma concerning any post-treatment exposure incidents.
