The evolution of UVC disinfection: Where do we go from here?
The UVC disinfection market has grown exponentially in the past five years as hospitals have been more receptive to adopting the technology. Part of this shift is due to increasing rates of infections, more superbugs discovered each year and increased financial accountability for infection rates. Hospitals are realizing that it’s critical to provide the cleanest environments possible to protect patients and staff from infections.
As the emphasis on providing the safest environment possible grows, hospitals will continue to seek out new ways to utilize technology in all areas of a facility. From patient rooms to ORs and procedure rooms, to clinic areas and outpatient spaces, UVC disinfection is an important adjunct to standard cleaning practices.
As prominent organizations such as the AHA, the CDC and ASHE begin to stress the use of enhanced terminal room disinfection technology, we believe UVC disinfection will become a standard of care for health care facilities. Backed by the only randomized clinical trial on UVC disinfection, Tru-D has been shown to provide a safer health care environment and improve patient outcomes.
