Baptist Easley Hospital in South Carolina, US, has become the first hospital in the region to adopt the Tru-D SmartUVC germicidal system into its daily cleaning protocols.

The hospital will use the automated, no-touch environmental disinfection system to improve protection against potential multi-drug resistant pathogens present in patient rooms and operating suites.

Baptist Easley infection prevention manager Julie Chastain said that pathogens such as MRSA and Clostridium difficile can be virtually eliminated with the use of Tru-D.

"Our commitment to achieving the best patient outcomes in our community is unwavering. We want our patients to have the safest hospital experience we can provide," stated hospital officials.

The dose of ultraviolet-C energy produced by Tru-D destroys germs present on surfaces, thereby reducing the risk of patients developing health care-associated infections.

SmartUVC technology enables the system’s sensors to monitor reflected ultraviolet light to determine when the correct dose has been delivered for reliable disinfection of the targeted space.

Tru-D spokesman Chuck Dunn said, "Tru-D’s advanced, environmentally friendly germicidal disinfection system has moved disinfection of rooms and equipment to a much higher level than can be achieved through manual, chemical cleaning alone."
