Lincoln County Medical Center Takes Proactive Approach to Room Disinfection
UltraViolet Device’s V-360° Room Sanitizer® is being utilized to sanitize and disinfect rooms by Presbyterian Healthcare Services.
Lincoln County Medical Center (LCMC) has taken a proactive approach to continually enhance the facility’s environmental health program. Their latest step in this ongoing effort is the deployment of mobile ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) technology to disinfect the medical center’s indoor environment.
The V-360° Room Sanitizer, designed and manufactured by UltraViolet Devices, Inc. (UVDI) was chosen for this important task by Lincoln County Medical Center in New Mexico. The V-360 Room Sanitizer is designed to provide a measured dose of UVGI for rapid and effective surface disinfection. The device emits 360 degrees of UV-C energy and can achieve 99% disinfection of target surfaces in minutes.
“This equipment uses new technology to virtually eliminate infectious viruses, bacteria and fungal spores from contaminating surfaces which are then contracted to patients, visitors and staff,” reported Vickie Briley, LCMC’s Infection Control Nurse. “This unit is 99-percent effective without the use of any chemicals or residue after use.”
Patsy Parker, LCMC’s Director of Patient Care Services went on to state, “LCMC may be one of the only hospitals in New Mexico that has one of these machines. I know we are the only one within the Presbyterian system right now. This machine will greatly reduce the risk for any admitted or surgical patients from contracting a hospital acquired infection and will be used in addition to routine cleaning procedures.”
A recent report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that healthcare acquired infections (HAIs) in hospitals alone result in excess healthcare costs of an estimated $30 billion each year. The V-360° Room Sanitizer helps to decrease the enormous risks associated with HAIs in both human health and medical costs.
