Campbell County Health Adds Another Layer of Patient Safety with UV Disinfection
Campbell County Health in Gillette, Wyoming, has added Tru-D SmartUVC to its arsenal of infection prevention strategies to ensure a germ-free health care environment.
From Campbell County Health:
Campbell County Memorial Hospital Surgical Services Director Sheryl James and Infection Prevention Director Veronica Taylor first became aware of Tru-D at their individual national conferences. The two saw its potential to complement their existing infection control efforts.
Campbell County Health invested in Tru-D and currently uses it in Med/Surg and ICU after discharge if the patient had influenza, RSV, C. diff or other contact or droplet infections. Tru-D is also used in the operating rooms as part of the terminal cleaning process. As of April 6, 2018, Tru-D had been used 126 times to disinfect patient care areas in CCMH.
“Tru-D is one way we are raising the bar when it comes to the level of care we provide to all patients,” said Sheryl James.
“Yes, this equipment was expensive,” said Veronica Taylor. “But that cost can be balanced out when you consider the cost of a healthcare-acquired infection, both to the patient and the organization.”
