A recent study has explored some of the challenges to the implementation of deploying disinfecting robots to fight hospital-acquired infections — and strategies to overcome them, according to an article on the Medical Device and Diagnostic Industry website.
Disinfecting robot employ short-wavelength ultraviolet radiation (UVC), designed to disinfect an entire room in one cycle.
The technology is designed to be used after the room has been cleaned with traditional protocols.
A paper published in Infection Control and Hospital Epidemiology, Implementation Lessons Learned From the Benefits of Enhanced Terminal Room (BETR) Disinfection Study: Process and Perceptions of Enhanced Disinfection with Ultraviolet Disinfection Devices, shared lessons for employing UVC disinfection.
