Hand Washing isn’t Enough to Prevent the Spread of HAIs on Frequently Touched Surfaces
Healthcare Acquired Infections (HAIs) kill at least 270 people every day. HAIs cost hospitals about $40,000 for each patient that is infected and reimbursement for these infections is going away quickly. One of the most common and easily preventable ways HAIs are spread is through surfaces that are constantly touched (ex. stethoscopes, oximeters, blood pressure cuffs, etc). Hand washing isn’t enough; it’s time to invest in new and proven technologies to stop the spread. Our UV Flash Cabinets are specifically designed to prevent the spread of HAIs on frequently touched surfaces.
UV Flash Cabinets Use UVC Light to Kill Bacteria
The UV Flash Cabinet quickly and effectively stops the spread of infection by killing live bacteria using Ultraviolet C rays (UVC) in a short 60 second cycle. There is no microorganism that is resistant to UVC light, including superbugs such as S. aureus, C. difficile, and A. baumannii. While Ultraviolet C light is not a new concept for killing bacteria, the combination of UVC light with the highly polished, mirror finish interior chamber makes the UV Flash Cabinet unique for preventing the spread of HAIs on frequently touched surfaces.
Use the UV Flash Cabinet for Anything Anywhere
UV Flash Cabinets will disinfect medical instruments, patient care items, and commonly used items such as cell phones, tablets, writing instruments, or anything else that is carried from patient room to patient room. With three sizes available, you can use them in different areas of your healthcare facility including nurses stations, waiting rooms, sterile processing, ICUs, patient rooms, and more.
