Battling Infection with UV Light - March 28, 2016

Hygiene is extremely important in reducing the spread of bacteria and pathogens in hospitals and healthcare facilities. Currently, all healthcare facilities throughout the United States must follow cleaning guidelines, staffing education, and monitoring of processes set up by the CDC. Infection Control Today discusses studies on monitoring cleaning staff members and the correlation to the effectiveness of cleaning practices. However, even with monitoring and regulations of these processes, cleaning with chemicals can still be subject to human error and may not be enough to battle these microorganisms. High-touch surfaces may not be as efficiently cleaned as initially thought or items are overlooked and may still potentially contain an infection.

 However, UV light disinfection can help aid in the fight against these infections. Our products take out the potential of oversights by safely and effectively destroying microorganisms with the proper dose of UV light without the risk of human error. UVC Cleaning Systems offers a second defense in infection control against bacteria and pathogens.
