A Spotlight on Persistent Pathogen Reduction
Pathogens are becoming more and more resistant to standard cleaning methods – innovative solutions are needed to reduce Healthcare Associated Infections (HAI). Ultraviolet light technology has proven effective in destroying pathogens in high risk environments but often takes too long using a single emitter system.
Crothall partnered with the Surfacide UV triple emitter system to control infections at Jersey Shore University Medical Center. By using three emitters in a room at the same time UV light can kill more pathogens faster and more effectively. After just 4 months of using the Surfacide triple emitter system in high risk environments HAI incidence at JSUMC dropped to zero.
