In today’s move to value-based healthcare, capital spending must be beneficial to patients, reduce costs, improve quality, and increase efficiency. Combatting HAIs with effective IP tools checks all of those boxes and is an ideal choice for end-of-year hospital investments.
According to the CDC, on any given day, about one in 31 hospital patients is hit with an HAI, many of which are avoidable. In any given year, almost 100,000 Americans with an HAI die. Fortunately, there is a tool available that prevents the spread of HAI – ultraviolet (UVC) disinfection.
UVC disinfection uses UV light to penetrate pathogen cell walls and render them unable to replicate. Frequent, proactive use of UVC technology helps reduce the pool of pathogens in your hospital, but only when it delivers the exact dose to kill specific microorganisms that cause infections. RD UVC is easy for your ES teams to use and is the only system that confirms the actual lethal UVC dose is delivered to targeted areas, proving compliance with IP protocol.
