Hanover and District Hospital’s (HDH) Environmental Services Team Declares War on Superbugs!
UVDI V-360° Room Sanitizer® is deployed to sanitize and disinfect rooms at Canada’s Hanover and District Hospital.
Established in 1923, Hanover and District Hospital provides a full range of primary-care hospital services and selected secondary-care services to the population of Hanover and the surrounding townships in Ontario, Canada. HDH is a state-of-the-art healthcare facility with a 24 hour emergency department.
A proactive approach has been implemented by Hanover and District Hospital to continually enhance the facility’s environmental health program. HDH recently deployed a portable device that provides ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) 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 Hanover and District Hospital in Ontario, Canada. 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.
“With germs all around us every day, the housekeeping department at HDH has armed themselves with new weapons to combat the threat of infections,” reported Bill Edmonstone, HDH’s Director, Hospital Operations. “The UV equipment recently purchased by HDH is used after a room is thoroughly cleaned by the housekeeping staff as part of a two-step cleaning procedure. The UV-C process takes only minutes to disinfect surfaces by effectively disrupting a microorganism’s DNA.”
“Recent studies demonstrate that environmental contamination contributes to the spread of healthcare acquired infections (HAIs) in hospitals,” stated Richard Hayes, President of UVDI. “The V-360° Room Sanitizer is cutting edge technology for combating HAIs and is clinically proven to significantly enhance hospital surface disinfection.”
