Top Tips for Choosing the Ideal UV Disinfection Device
Date:10/19/2013

MEMPHIS, Tenn., Oct. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology kicks off a new awareness campaign about health care-associated infections next week during International Infection Prevention Week, it's sure to rouse interest in the demand for preventive measures to rid hospitals of these dreaded and deadly HAIs. UV disinfection is among the measures leaders at top hospitals around the U.S. and Canada are considering when waging war on superbugs that threaten patients, physically and financially.

A recent report by MedERA, "Economic Burden of Healthcare-Associated Infections in U.S. Acute Care Hospitals -- Societal Perspective" published in the Journal of Medical Economics online edition, estimates that HAIs may cost both hospitals and patients combined up to $147 billion annually.

The staggering financial impact of HAIs is forcing infection preventionists to address the cost burden for both hospitals and affected patients.

While UV disinfection technology isn't new – the first and only "smart" device, TRU-D SmartUVC(TM), entered the market in 2007 – hospital executives are still trying to determine the best way to make an informed purchase. Armed with a list of top questions to consider, they can determine which device will help achieve necessary HAI reduction rates for their hospital or facility.

What to consider:

  • Is there evidence-based data from independent clinical research and third-party/peer-reviewed studies confirming the effectiveness of the device?
  • What hospitals are using this technology?
  • Is the device able to precisely measure variables including UV-C reflective properties, dose delivery and bulb deg
