About the Webinar
The first-ever randomized clinical trial on UVC light disinfection has proven that disinfection robots are effective in reducing hospital-acquired infections. Conducted across nine hospitals and funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Benefits of Enhanced Terminal Room Disinfection (BETR-D) study found that compliance to standardized cleaning strategies and adding UV light to disinfect patient rooms cut transmission of four major superbugs by a cumulative 30% percent among patients admitted to the same room.
As hospitals across the country look to adopt UVC technology, do you know how to achieve a return on investment while avoiding reimbursement penalties? In this webinar, experts will discuss how lessons learned from the BETR-D study can help you create an evidenced-based program reducing HAIs, improving patient safety and enhancing community perception of your hospital's commitment to a clean and safe environment.
Register for this webinar to:
- Gain scientifically-validated best practices around enhanced UVC disinfection
- Learn how to determine a customized ROI that is specific to your organization
- Support clinical workflows and outcomes
- Hear how a Florida hospital reduced SSIs with the use of UVC
