The Problem

Each day, about 1 in 31 U.S. patients has at least one infection associated with hospital care. That is 1.7 million patients with an estimated 98,000 patients dying because of improper sanitation.6,7

The Problem

Less than 50% of hospital room surfaces are adequately cleaned and disinfected when chemical germicides are used. The overall thoroughness of terminal cleaning is an average of 49%.9,10

The Problem

Hospitals with Total HAC Scores greater than the 75th percentile of all Total HAC Scores (i.e., the worst-performing quartile) will be subject to a 1% payment reduction.8

Correct Dosage

Skytron’s Ultraviolet C (UVC) provides an effective method of microorganism inactivation for contaminated air and surfaces. UVC disinfection technology has been in use since the early 1900s for municipal water supplies and Skytron’s UVC infection control devices are a powerful, modern, mobile solution to reduce HAI’s.

UVC energy is a wavelength range of Ultraviolet energy spanning 200-280 nanometers (nm). Skytron’s UVC sanitization robots specifically employ the highly germicidal 253.7 nm bandwidth to cause photochemical damage to cellular DNA and virus RNA. This biological damage inactivates the cell by preventing replication and therefore infection capability. Germicidal efficacy is determined by the overall dose of UV disinfection light, which is a product of lamp output (i.e., intensity) and exposure duration.

Traditional, manual hospital cleaning protocols are often insufficient in stopping the spread of pathogens and leave room for error in technique and chemical application. With the use of UVC disinfection in hospitals or any facility, the Skytron portfolio ensures the correct germicidal dose is thoroughly delivered to all surfaces, lowering infection rates and costs.
