UV light zaps 'bugs' in hospital rooms
from MedPage Today
Flooding hospital rooms with ultraviolet light from a robotic device kills more than 90 percent of pathogens, including Clostridium difficile, researchers said. The device, which emits UV light for fixed periods of time (up to 45 minutes for C. difficile), is designed to complement general cleaning of hospital rooms to prevent in-hospital transmission of pathogens such as C. difficile, vancomycin-resistant enterococci and Acinetobacter, said Deverick Anderson, M.D., assistant professor of medicine at Duke University.
