Searching for the root cause of healthcare associated infections (HAIs) is an ongoing and never ending activity. The truth is that there is very little clinical data existing proving the efficacy of cleaning practices. Among the 80 published studies focusing on proper environmental cleaning methods only five were randomized controlled. Most studies simply compare microbial counts before and after cleaning. There is a clear lack of studies on disinfecting methods and monitoring strategies. Below is an article written by Hanneke Weitering of Medpage Today. This article points to the fact that studies with traditional chemicals showed mixed results while many alternatives “no touch” options had much more positive outcomes.
An effective alternative to relying on manual cleaning with chemicals is to implement a “no touch” whole room ultraviolet (UVC) program into your cleaning program. UVC Cleaning Systems mobile and stationary units provide a calculated dose of energy to the environment allowing for the most comprehensive coverage. Linking UVC Cleaning systems can eliminate shadows, increases turn around time and with a simple three button remotes makes sanitizing very simple, yet effective.
