UV Disinfection Technologies on Display at the 2012 AHE Exchange Conference
UltraViolet Devices, Inc. (UVDI) will be exhibiting surface and air disinfection products designed for healthcare environments.
UVDI, a leading provider of ultraviolet (UV) disinfection and molecular filtration technologies, will be exhibiting at the 2012 Exchange Conference. The Exchange Conference is presented by the Association for the Healthcare Environment (AHE). The conference and healthcare marketplace will be taking place from September 16th through the 19th at the Sheraton Phoenix Downtown Hotel and Convention Center.
The AHE is a professional association representing over 2,300 professionals caring for the healthcare environment. The organization is affiliated with the American Hospital Association and offers education, professional development and advocacy, and information and resources about new technologies, equipment, operations and procedures to its members.
One of the hot topics at this year’s event is how healthcare professionals can help prevent healthcare associated infections (HAIs). The costs and risks associated with HAIs are enormous, in fact the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states, “Approximately 1 out of every 20 hospitalized patients will contract an HAI.”
“The CDC estimates that there are approximately 1.7 million HAIs contracted annually in the U.S. which adds over $30 billion medical costs each year,” reported Richard Hayes, President of UltraViolet Devices, Inc. “UV disinfection products developed by UVDI provide healthcare professionals with new tools to combat these HAIs. Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) is a proven method of surface and air disinfection and has been used safely for many years in a number of industries. UVDI has applied its 20 years of industry leading UV disinfection experience to provide the healthcare sector with new tools to mitigate surface transmitted pathogens such as MRSA and C. diff,” he continued.
