Reducing HAIs


Hospitals around the country have seen real-world results using UVC disinfection. Oneida Healthcare invested in Tru-D in 2016 to drive its already low infection rates further down. Before implementing Tru-D, the facility’s C. diff rate was .61; by 2017, it dropped significantly to .18—a 70% decrease. “Though actual cost savings from HAI avoidance can be difficult to quantify, we know from national statistics that HAIs can cost an average of $15,000, so we do believe those savings are real,” said Mary Parry, Chief Operating Officer of Oneida Healthcare. Tru-D is used in Oneida’s operating rooms at end-of-day cleaning as well as in isolation discharge cases.
Individual hospital results may vary based on numerous factors including adherence to standard disinfection protocol.

  • Tru-D was the obvious choice because we wanted something that was easy to use and reduced the probability of human error. We love the fact that our Tru-D robot doesn’t need to be repositioned to disinfect a specific area within a room.

  • We strive to ‘stay ahead of the curve’ when it comes to patient safety, so when evaluating disinfection processes, UVC application was a natural next step. Tru-D’s ability to assess the space and antimicrobial UV dosage was key in this decision.

  • The Sensor360® technology set Tru-D apart. Rather than estimating the necessary UVC dose or moving a unit to multiple placements in a room, Tru-D is able to provide a measured dose of UVC light to provide disinfection from a single cycle in a single location.
