The Pinnacle Homes at Rocky Ridge, in Georgia, is a premier community managed by Colonial Properties Trust. Because of its tenant density and need for unit availability, it was of the utmost importance that the affected unit (wherein a suicide had occurred) be restored to its pre-incident condition as soon as possible.
We were thrilled with the affordable work that Biotrauma has done for us.

Days Inn and Suites, Norcross
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.

Most people expect doctors to have to continue their educations long after their degrees are earned. After all, advances in medicine make this necessary to ensure that patients receive topnotch care. It’s hard, however, to think that a Georgia corner might also be required to head back to class on a regular basis. The reality is medical examiners in this state do have to stay on top of their game. Even though continued education for a corner won’t result in better patient care, it can help ensure that mysteries surrounding deaths are solved. Read more →
