Keeping Our Veterans Safe

Posted by Tru-D SmartUVC 08.15.18

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 has been shown 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.

Real-World Results

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.

Individual hospital results may vary based on numerous factors including adherence to standard disinfection protocol.

“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.”
