The direct medical cost of HAIs to health care facilities exceeds $30 billion annually. Tru-D lowers the risk of patients developing unnecessary and preventable infections transmitted by the environment during their treatment.
Reducing the incidences of health care infections by eradicating the pathogens that lie hidden in the health care environments is Tru-D’s guarantee of an immediate cost avoidance.

Tru-D is environmentally friendly — using no chemicals while killing germs in the hospital. This high-powered ultraviolet light has moved cleaning rooms and equipment to a higher level. We want our patients to have the safest health care we can provide.

Covenant Medical Center and Satori Medical Center are using Tru-D to combat hospital-acquired infections in patients rooms, operating rooms, labor and delivery units and the pediatrics unit. The robots are also very portable and can be deployed at our other faculties as needed.

The acquisition of this technology is simply another way that we’re working to protect the integrity of our health care environment, and ultimately, safeguard the well-being of every single patient who walks through our doors.

Director of Infection Prevention and Control at O’Connor Hospital
“We have experienced major savings due to the reduction in overall infections. We attribute the reduction in infections to evidenced-based practice changes. High on the list of interventions is the judicial use of Tru-D on rooms that bed patients and a nightly rotation in the surgical suites.”
RN and Manager of Medical Center of Central Georgia’s Prevention and Control Center
“Tru-D offers an abundance of health benefits. Our facilities are committed to providing the highest quality medical care, and we are pleased to offer this innovative solution as one of the many ways in which we bolster the well-being and safety of our staff and patients.”

Tru-D SmartUVC™ is engineered to kill the nasty bugs that live on surfaces in hospital rooms. Research shows that UV light can kill bugs, MRSA, C. diff, Acinetobacter and bacteria that traditional scrubbing with disinfectants just don’t kill. It (UVC light) bounces off surfaces and kills everything.”
“Increased evidence in scientific literature indicates that Tru-D disinfection technology has the power to disinfect entire rooms and render common hospital pathogens, such as influenza, norovirus and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, harmless.”
Director of Infection Prevention and Control at Houston Methodist
“We are always on a mission to find new and improved ways to protect our patients from superbugs. This is shaping up to be a worse than average season for norovirus and the flu, and using UV light disinfection devices allows us to help contain outbreaks in our...
