New Technology for Preventing Hospital Acquired Infections in Anchorage
Preventing hospital acquired infections (HAIs) starts with cleanliness. From hands to the objects staff use every day to do their job, everything needs to be sterilized and clean to eliminate germs. The problem is that these practices for preventing hospital acquired infections take time and can be easily forgotten when your hospital is busy fighting to save lives. Technological advances are being made all the time to assist in the on-going battle against HAIs; the latest is UV Light Cabinets. The UV Light Cabinet quickly and effectively prevents hospital acquired infections by killing live bacteria using Ultraviolet C rays. We provide UV Light Cabinets in Anchorage, Fairbanks, Juneau, and throughout the state of Alaska.
How Do the UV Light Cabinets Work?
Step 1: Move the cabinet into whatever area it’s needed: waiting room, patient’s room, bathroom, nurse station, break room, etc. Since it only uses 120 volts of energy, no special outlet is required. It can also be placed on a cart for easy transportation.
Step 2: Place objects that need to be disinfected on the adjustable shelves (ex. stethoscope, blood pressure cuff, smart phones, glasses, etc). The wire shelves enable the UVC lamps to reach all sides of the object and disinfect the entire surface area.
Step 3: Close the door and press the start button. After only 60 seconds the system indicator light will turn from red to green, meaning your objects are disinfected and ready to use.
What Can You Put in the UV Light Cabinet?
The UV Light Cabinets help with preventing hospital acquired infections by eliminating transient bacteria found on numerous objects that are handled by your staff. In fact, the UV Light Cabinets can disinfect a wide range of everyday objects and items that are difficult to clean, including:
- Blood pressure cuffs
- Cell phones
- MARs scanners
- Keys/ID cards
- Writing instruments
