CORRECTION: This webinar has been updated to correctly identify the manufacturer of a prior disinfection device used by United Hospital Center as an IRiS™ UV device. A prior recording of this webinar incorrectly identified the manufacturer as Tru-D SmartUVC.
Webinar: Doing UV Right — How a West Virginia Hospital Zapped HAIs and Avoided Reimbursement Penalties
Now Available On-Demand
Join us for an engaging webinar exploring how hospital-acquired infections can affect a facility's quality metrics, placing reimbursement penalties at greater risk. We'll look at how the shift from mercury-based UV disinfection to pulsed xenon ultraviolet has helped hospitals expand their infection prevention efforts, reduce HAIs and ultimately avoid penalties. Dr. Mark Povroznik, Chief Quality Officer at West Virginia University Medicine's United Hospital Center, will discuss his facility's strategy for disinfection, including best practices for using UV.
Join this webinar to learn:
- The financial and quality factors that are motivating providers to invest in no-touch disinfection technology
- How UV deployment strategies evolved within United Hospital Center
- How goals set for United Hospital Center's new disinfection process were achieved and supported through staff decision hierarchies
