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.
