sarasota with iqEducation and training are top priorities during UVC device installation. This is not only for Tru-D device operators, but unit staff as well including RNs, Nurse Managers, HUCs, Physicians, Administrators and Environmental Services staff. Rounding the hospital with Tru-D device before training gives the hospital staff time to ask questions and voice concerns while the Tru-D device representative is on site.

Operator training includes classroom training (with a  written test), on-the-floor training in patient rooms and OR suites and a competency form for any regulatory agency that may need to see it.

Tru-D SmartUVC also provides “train-the-trainer” materials so the facility can properly train new employees and operators on using the device.

In addition to thorough training, Tru-D SmartUVC provides several safety measures and barriers to ensure no one enters the room while the device is in operation. These include door barriers, audible warnings, DoorSense, MotionSense, passive infrared (PIR) sensors, automatic shutoff upon entry, door monitors and visible caution signage. However, education is the best way to prevent accidental exposure.
