Study: UV light disinfection reduces C. diff in patient rooms

from UPI

Ultraviolet C light disinfection on unoccupied patient rooms in hospitals significantly reduces C. difficile infections, researchers say in a new study. The research was conducted by scientists from the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America, and published in Infection Control & Hospital Epidemiology. According to the study's authors, UV C light disinfection not only reduces the risk of patients developing C. difficile infections, but also saves between $350,000 to $1.5 million each year in healthcare costs. more
