Hospital installs bacteria-fighting operating room light fixtures

April 7, 2017

Las Vegas's Henderson Hospital has installed disinfecting lights in its operating and recovery rooms, according to an article on the Cleanzine website.

The lights reduce harmful bacteria, including MRSA and C-diff, up to 70 percent beyond routine disinfection efforts.

The continuous environmental disinfection technology is not UV light. It uses light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to generate visible white light that also contains a narrow spectrum of indigo colored light. 

The indigo color uses a wavelength of 405 nanometers (nm), which automatically and continuously disinfects the environment, the article said.
