Medical Center Hospital (MCH), a 402-bed regional medical centre located in Odessa, Texas, has deployed UltraViolet Devices’ (UVDI) V-360+ UV room sanitiser.
After evaluating several portable ultraviolet germicidal irradiation products used to disinfect surfaces, the hospital chose UltraViolet Devices’ V-360 UV+ room sanitiser.
The V-360+ is a mobile ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) device that is deployed by environmental services staff to disinfect hospital rooms after cleaning.
MCH chose this system for its proven performance, ease of use and low total cost of ownership.
Medical Center Health System environmental services director Justin Lewis said the hospital looked at several options before deciding that UVDI’s V-360+ UV room sanitiser provided the surface disinfection technology that was ideally suited to its needs.
"Surface disinfection is a critical component of our environmental services and the V-360+ allows us to efficiently and effectively achieve this outcome with an affordable, portable and green technology," Lewis added.
"When it comes to the care of our patients we take all concerns, big or small, very seriously, and this is a further step in creating a cleaner environment; for patients, families, caregivers and the Permian Basin."
Medical Center Health System has added UVDI’s V-360+ UV room sanitiser as an integral part of its ongoing efforts to achieve superior surface disinfection.
UVDI president Richard Hayes said that the V-360+ generates high intensity UV energy and quickly disinfects surfaces contaminated with viruses, bacteria and fungi, including superbugs such as MRSA and C. difficile.
"MCH joins a growing number of hospitals and healthcare providers across the country who have adopted the V-360+ UV room sanitiser based on proven superior disinfection performance that ultimately improves patient outcomes," Hayes added.
Medical Center Health System (MCH) has grown from one facility into a family of healthcare providers delivering a broad range of advanced medical services to the people of Odessa, Texas, and the surrounding 17 counties of the Permian Basin. It currently serves over 100,000 patients each year.
