A recent study has shown that whole-room disinfecting robots can be effective in shorter cleaning cycles than previously thought, according to an article on the Outpatient Surgery website.
Previously, the time it took for disinfecting robots to kill bacteria on operating room surfaces made them impractical for between-case room turnovers.
A U.S. hospital recently found that pulsed xenon ultraviolet (UV) light effectively disinfected high-touch OR surfaces in two minutes.
From two minutes to eight minutes, there was no statistically significant difference in environmental contamination after use.
