Three new germ-killing robots were recently deployed at the U.S. Army hospitals in South Kores, according to an article on the Stripes Korea website.
The 5-foot-5 germ killing robot is a mobile, automated disinfection robot designed to be used in hospital operating rooms after an environmental services member cleans the area with the traditional cleaning methods.
"Although the (Brian Allgood Army Community Hospital) has a very low infection rate, below national standards, the command saw this concept as a way to add an additional protocol and supplement our room cleaning process," said Maj. Michelle Wells, Chief Operating Room Nurse.
Walter Reed Army Medical Center, Martin Army Community Hospital at Fort Benning and Womack Army Hospital at Fort Bragg also have the robots and results are showing a significant lower hospital infection rate, according to the article.
