Valencia, CA – WEBWIRE – Thursday, January 23, 2014

This technology allows us to provide the best care through a clinically proven technology that is extremely effective.

St. Mary’s Community Hospital (SMCH) has invested in the health of the Nebraska City region by constantly upgrading its facilities and technology to the finest available.  The hospital is an 18-bed Critical Access hospital that also provides residents with acute inpatient services, medical/surgical services, 24-hour emergency care, obstetrics, complete radiology services, cardiac testing, respiratory therapy, physical therapy, occupational therapy, cardiac rehabilitation, pulmonary services, more than 17 medical specialty clinics, plus many other services.
 
Recently, SMCH continued this investment in care by adopting cutting edge technology to clean rooms throughout the hospital.  The V-360+ UV Room Sanitizer from UltraViolet Devices, Inc. (UVDI) is now deployed at St. Mary’s Community Hospital to provide superior surface disinfection to help prevent the spread of germs on surfaces throughout the facility.
 
The V-360+ is a mobile ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) device that is utilized by the environmental services staff at SMCH to sanitize rooms after cleaning. It generates high intensity UV energy and quickly disinfects surfaces contaminated with viruses, bacteria and fungi, including superbugs such as MRSA and C. difficile. Environmental Services Manager, David Radke said, “It especially provides that added security during flu season.”
 
“The V-360+ has already been used in our emergency department, outpatient clinic rooms, chemotherapy rooms, Cat Scan area, physicians’ lounge, operating rooms, birthing rooms and inpatient rooms,” said Diana McNeilly, Infection Preventionist, St. Mary’s Community Hospital.  “This technology allows us to provide the best care through a clinically proven technology that is extremely effective.” 
 
Robert Thompson, Regional Sales Specialist for UVDI, reports, “The V-360+ achieves 99% or greater surface disinfection in just minutes.  This efficiency, along with its mobility, means that one unit can be used to treat many areas within a hospital on any given day.  St. Mary’s Community Hospital has now joined a growing list of healthcare providers across the country who have adopted the V-360+ to provide the highest level of service and care available to their patients and staff.”
