IPC is an evidence-based approach that prevents healthcare workers and patients from being harmed by avoidable infections.
In today’s healthcare environment, hospitals need to choose technologies that can be measured and are able to provide the data needed to show proof of UVC dosing and compliance.
Disinfection in addition to traditional cleaning methods is the best way to help ensure a cleaner, safer environment. According to the FDA, UVC radiation is a known disinfectant for air and nonporous surfaces.
Environmental Services (EVS) teams play a critical role in a hospital’s infection control efforts. Supported by hospital administrators and Infection Prevention (IP) leaders, EVS groups are responsible for deploying infection prevention measures that serve as a first line of defense against the spread of disease.
While there are many strategies to optimize patient throughput, the critical role of speed in disinfection practices has taken on new meaning in the current climate since it is a key evaluation metric when implementing disinfection solutions.
