The Spread of HAIs
An estimated 20 to 40 percent of health associated infections (HAIs) are passed by a healthcare worker after they touch another patient or a contaminated surface. These numbers can be significantly reduced with a comprehensive and bundled approach to infection prevention that is deployed throughout an entire hospital—from patient rooms, ICUs, and ORs to ERs and all public areas.
How to Prevent the Spread of HAIs
Achieve HAI reduction with a combination of IP techniques throughout different hospital rooms and by following the CDC’s general guidelines:
- Comply with hand hygiene recommendations
- Maintain a sterile environment around open incisions
- Disinfect equipment thoroughly
- Educate patient, family and healthcare workers about infection control procedures
Utilizing IP techniques in all hospital rooms ensures maximum protection from the spread of harmful infections. Deploying a bundled IP approach in the OR, ER, all patient rooms, public spaces and across all departments. For instance, proper UV disinfection dosing can reach all points of interest in any hospital room, like in dark shadowed areas and under tables. Viewing IP execution data on your system lets you to see which rooms have been treated, by whom, and how often in each room your UVC system is deployed.
