A recent study addresses the most frequent barriers hospitals faced in implementing UV systems and strategies to overcome them, according to an article on the Health Facilities Management website.
The study identified two main issues: identification of rooms that would benefit from UV disinfection, and time constraints to allow environmental services staff time to properly use the system.
Implementation strategies include establishing UV disinfection as a patient- and staff-safety priority.
The study said this helps to overcome conflicts in opinions among nurses, bed control personnel and environmental services.
