tru-d at st francis In this three-part blog series, we will share how the Tru-D SmartUVC team provides hospitals with leading-edge technology for enhanced disinfection of health care environments using a comprehensive, programmatic approach. In this post, learn about building a culture of UVC throughout your facility. Establishing a successful UVC disinfection program takes time and effort from both the facility as well as the Tru-D SmartUVC team. Compliance with protocols is imperative, and we equip you with the tools to achieve it. With more than a decade of experience in the UVC space, #TeamTruD understands that there can be pitfalls when it comes to implementing UVC disinfection technology. Rather than sell and drop off a device at a facility, we assign a team to work with your facility and, together with our Program Management, Clinical Affairs, Regional Sales Managers, and Communications Team, we help identify your goals, prioritize the use of the Tru-D device and define success. A consistent message is key:
  • Identify a Tru-D champion within your facility. Having a champion on your team who can own the program and work directly with the Tru-D SmartUVC team is important. This individual can help build a standard operating procedure, track usage against opportunities, and “rally the troops” at your facility to ensure long-term success.
  • Encourage a multidisciplinary approach with your team. We know that time is critical when it comes to health care. Through educating multiple disciplines including nursing, bed tracking, and other departments, you can achieve a higher adoption rate and more consistent buy-in among the staff.
  • Build a communications plan together with Tru-D SmartUVC and internal and external partners. Establishing a UVC disinfection program is a significant investment in the cleanliness of your facility. The Tru-D SmartUVC communications team can help you educate various audiences, both internal and external, on the extra steps you are taking to ensure a clean environment. Our team provides tools and materials free of cost because we are confident in our technology and share the same goals as you.
Training and Implementation: Build a Culture of UVC Tru-D SmartUVC provides extensive training for operators and stakeholders including both classroom and hands-on training. We help your team through the logistics of implementation with bed tracking and workflow as well as teach how to operate the device safely and educate staff on important safety protocols when operating the device. By developing standard operating procedures, your team will feel empowered and take ownership of your UVC disinfection program. Not only does educating your team shows a commitment to cleanliness, but it also empowers them to know they are contributing to their patients’ well-being with state-of-the-art equipment.
