“Nightmare Bacteria” Cannot Withstand UV Disinfection

Posted by Tru-D SmartUVC 04.05.18

Hundreds of hospitals throughout the country are deploying Tru-D SmartUVC UVC disinfection robots to help stop the spread of dangerous superbugs or “nightmare bacteria,” as the CDC calls them. Chemical-free and environmentally-friendly, UVC disinfection has been validated by a CDC-funded randomized clinical trial to reduce the relative risk of colonization and infection by four major superbugs by a cumulative 30 percent among patients admitted to the same room and when 93% compliance of standard disinfection protocols occurred.

Tru-D allows hospital staff to easily and confidently disinfect virtually any environment, including patient rooms, intensive care units, operating rooms, emergency rooms and public areas. The UVC disinfection robot kills deadly pathogens and common health care-associated infection culprits such as C. diff, Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) and other bacteria that compromise patient outcomes.

Cost Savings to Hospitals

The direct medical cost of HAIs to health care facilities exceeds $30 billion annually. Tru-D lowers the risk of patients developing unnecessary and preventable infections transmitted by the environment. Reducing the incidences of health care infections by eradicating the pathogens that lie hidden in health care environments can lead to an immediate cost avoidance.
