What is UV Light Disinfection?

Why Every Medical Department Should Prioritize Infection Control

According to the FDA, UVC radiation is a known disinfectant for air and nonporous surfaces. UVC radiation has effectively been used for decades to reduce the spread of bacteria and harmful pathogens. UVC dosing works to reach targeted areas within a treated room, including those in shadowed or hard-to-reach places. By reaching areas that manual cleaning and other technology cannot, UVC helps to ensure disinfection is as complete as possible.

A UV disinfection system administers the specific dose of ultraviolet light needed to reduce harmful pathogens in an individual room or other areas of possible contamination. When bundled with manual cleaning and disinfection protocols, the technology helps to significantly reduces the presence of harmful pathogens.


How UV Light Works

how UVC light works

The UV Disinfection system administers the specific dose of ultraviolet light needed to reduce harmful pathogens in targeted areas of a room. When bundled with manual cleaning and disinfection protocols, the technology can help to significantly reduce the presence of harmful pathogens.

UV Light Usage

UVC light dosing works to reach targeted areas within a treated room, including those in shadowed or hard-to-reach places. By treating areas that manual cleaning and other technology cannot, the RD UVC System helps to disinfect in a manner that is as complete as possible. Wireless, remote sensors help provide confirmation that the precise amount of UVC light needed to help reduce bacteria, viruses, spores, and other harmful pathogens is administered for optimal effectiveness. Treatment data can be tracked on a tablet or other device to determine which rooms have been treated – by whom and how often – to assure proper treatment.

UV Disinfection Efficiency

The best UVC equipment is engineered to operate as efficiently as possible to help reduce treatment time and return treatment areas to service quickly. A “pause and reposition” feature helps operators streamline use of the technology. The technology helps staff quickly disinfect crucial, targeted areas and return rooms to service; the accelerated turnaround time makes it possible to treat more rooms in any given day.

Reporting and Measurement

Tracking treatment data, monitoring effectiveness, and sharing with necessary stakeholders is an important function of UVC light technology. The RD UVC System enables managers to check real-time status on tablets to ensure the equipment is being used properly and effectively. The system also captures and stores records via an on-board computer, automatically sending it to a secure cloud system for later analysis and reporting.
