One Comprehensive Solution for a Safer Environment
Veterans risk their lives to protect our freedom, and they deserve the highest level of care while in a hospital setting. Just as important as handwashing, manual cleaning and antibiotic stewardship are to preventing hospital infections and keeping our veterans safe, so is disinfecting the room from top to bottom. Tru-D’s evidence-based solution has been proven to improve patient safety by complementing your existing infection reduction protocols. Tru-D’s unique, programmatic approach to UVC disinfection and commitment to excellent customer experiences, result in substantial cost savings and improved patient outcomes, hospital-wide.
St. Cloud VA Health Care System in St. Cloud, Minnesota, conducted a study on the effectiveness of Tru-D SmartUVC in operating rooms, endoscopy suites, urology procedure rooms and resident rooms of a community living center. Results proved that Tru-D is capable of inactivating all colony growth that was left behind after manual cleaning was performed.
“The study demonstrated that after manual cleaning, more than half of environmental swabs grew colonies of organisms, which validates the incompleteness of manual cleaning,” said Alice Brewer, MPH, CIC, Director of Clinical Affairs for Tru-D SmartUVC. “This is consistent with other published research on the ineffectiveness of manual cleaning as a stand-alone process. Further, after using Tru-D, not a single environmental swab grew any colonies – proof that Tru-D is an exceptional adjunct to manual cleaning, and that it is capable of inactivating organisms throughout an entire room.”

The ROI has been our increased confidence in our clean environment. In 2016, our C-Diff rate was 0.61. After we implemented UVC disinfection in 2017, it dropped to 0.18. Though actual cost savings from HAI avoidance can be difficult to quantify, we know from national statistics that HAIs...

Tru-D was the obvious choice because we wanted something that was easy to use and reduced the probability of human error. We love the fact that our Tru-D robot doesn’t need to be repositioned to disinfect a specific area within a room.

We strive to ‘stay ahead of the curve’ when it comes to patient safety, so when evaluating disinfection processes, UV application was a natural next step. Tru-D’s ability to assess the space and antimicrobial UV dosage was key in this decision.

The acquisition of UV technology is simply another way that we’re working to safeguard the well-being of every single patient who walks through our doors and protect the integrity of our health care environment.
Infection Control and Prevention Coordinator at Charlotte Hungerford Hospital
Last year, our hospital had 81 cases of hospital-acquired C. diff. We’re on pace to have about one-third fewer hospital-acquired infections of all kinds this year, a decrease I attribute to the whole-room disinfection technologies we’ve added to our manual cleaning.

Using an iPad outside the room, our staff turns on Tru-D remotely and begins a single disinfection cycle. The robot is able to compensate for room variables such as size, shape and contents to deliver the precise dose of UV energy needed throughout the entire room. The technology...
Vice President of Pperations at Archbold Medical Center
Tru-D is the only UV disinfection system on the market that has been evaluated for effectiveness in a randomized clinical trial — conducted by Duke and funded by the CDC. We are pleased to now be able to offer this infection prevention technology to our patients and to...
CEO of Frye Regional Medical Center
The Sensor360® technology set Tru-D apart. Rather than estimating the necessary UV dose or moving a unit to multiple placements in a room, Tru-D is able to analyze a space and provide a measured, lethal dose of UV light to provide total room disinfection from a single cycle...
