How to Break the Chain of Surface Infection with a UV Device


Studies have shown that less than 50 percent of environmental surfaces in patient-care rooms are properly cleaned and disinfected, leading to elevated rates of healthcare-associated infections in hospitals. With changing technologies and the emergence of complex electronic equipment, a shift to UV devices for surface disinfection is becoming increasingly necessary.

Infection Control Today has issued a Digital Magazine that provides research-backed information detailing the positive effects of a UV device for surface disinfection directly related to patient satisfaction, CDI reduction, room turnaround time, and even hospital reputations and financial stability.
