Washington County

Washington County Hospital is the first hospital in the U.S. to add the Tru-D iQ Scout device to its cleaning and disinfection program.

Washington County Hospital plays a vital part in the health of patients in and around Washington County, Kansas. It is a critical access hospital dedicated to serving the community with high-quality health care.

Washington County Hospital previously invested in the Tru-D Classic device, a larger, more powerful UVC disinfection robot that is used in patient rooms, operating rooms and other areas of the facility. Scout will be used in bathrooms, labs, emergency vehicles and other small spaces to provide an additional level of cleanliness to Washington County’s already stringent list of disinfection protocols.

“The investment in this innovative technology is simply another way that we’re working to ensure our health care environment is as clean as possible,” said Roxanne Schottel, CEO. “The Tru-D iQ Scout will complement the outstanding work that our environmental services team does to inactivate unwanted microorganisms that may linger in our facility and will work in tandem with our Tru-D Classic device to enhance the cleanliness of our hospital.”

The Tru-D devices inactivate unwanted microorganisms including C. diff, SARS-CoV-2, influenza A, MSSA and Candida auris that may be left behind after traditional cleaning.
