hospitals ranked among 2021’s Best Infection Prevention Products by Newsweek and The Leapfrog

The award recognizes the most promising products for helping patients and the health care workforce
avoid infection. The Leapfrog Group, an independent nonprofit that evaluates health care quality,                 
collaborated with Newsweek to grade products and services using four criteria: effectiveness, safety to
patients and healthcare workers, successful real-world implementation, and the stability of the company
to support future implementation.

“We evaluated the quality of research demonstrating a product's effectiveness,” said Nancy Cooper,
Newsweek Global Editor-in-Chief. “Case studies from hospitals and other healthcare facilities were used
to evaluate real-world implementation.”

Used in hundreds of hospitals nationwide, Nozin NOVASM programs are clinically proven to help reduce
risk of healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) up to 96%, improve patient care, and provide up to $1.4
million in annual cost savings1. Hospital leadership also reports increased staff satisfaction with Nozin.

Nozin NOVA programs for colonization risk mitigation have been shown to reduce methicillin
resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection risks in hospitals and surgery centers by up to 100%1
