UV Disinfection: Cost Savings to Hospitals
The direct medical cost of hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) to health care facilities exceeds $30 billion annually, and each HAI case can cost a hospital more than $15,000. As the penalties for HAIs increase and more superbugs are discovered each year, it’s critical for hospitals to reduce the risk of acquisition of these infections.
Tru-D may lower the risk of patients developing unnecessary and preventable infections transmitted by the environment such as C. diff, MRSA, VRE, norovirus and more. Using chemical-free and environmentally-friendly UVC energy, Tru-D kills up to 99.9% of pathogens that can remain in health care facilities after manual cleaning is performed. 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.
