Jennifer Picker, Manager of Program Management for Tru-D SmartUVC

Once pre-planning has occurred, it’s important to get buy-in from leadership and staff in order for a UVC disinfection program to be successful. Departments should work closely together to identify problem areas of the facility as well as microorganisms they would like to focus on and eradicate.

Leadership takes great ownership of the units, and when the cleaning staff walks in with a new device, it should not be the first time they are seeing Tru-D. Leadership needs the opportunity to see how the device works, ask questions and be able to understand the benefits, rather than seeing it as an obstacle.

If communication is made a priority among all stakeholders, a UVC disinfection program will have a much better chance of being successful.
