Kansas healthcare facility hires infection-fighting robot

March 24, 2017

The Olathe (Kan.) Medical Center uses ultraviolet light-emitting robots to disinfect hospital rooms, according to an article on the Kansas City Business Journal website.

The technology, called the Surfacide Helios system, takes about 10 to 30 minutes to disinfect each room. The system uses laser mapping to ensure every exposed surface is covered, the article said.

When the patient is discharged, the room is manually cleaned and then the (Ultraviolet-C) system is brought in to kill pathogens that might remain.

The surgical suites are also treated with UV-C nightly when the cases are done for the day.
