Enhanced disinfection techniques can reduce hospital-acquired infections, according to an article on the Psychiatry Advisor website.
A study evaluated four strategies for enhanced terminal room disinfection:
• Quaternary ammonium disinfectant (except C difficile, for which bleach was used)
• UV (ultraviolet): Reference + UV (except C difficile, for which bleach + UV were used)
• Bleach + UV
Pathogens was reduced by 30 percent when UV was added. There was no statistically significant difference in either the bleach alone or in the bleach with UV group.
