According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), outpatient settings are at great risk for healthcare-associated infections (HAIs)—due to the shift in care delivery from acute to non-acute settings, as well as recently documented outbreaks and patient-notification events.¹
Are you doing all you can to prevent HAIs in your practice or facility?
You're probably already following infection prevention protocols that include handwashing and disinfecting, but that might not be enough. That's why the Optimum-UV® Systems from Clorox Healthcare® arms you with the power of clinically proven ultraviolet technology to kill more than 30 HAI-causing pathogens in 5 minutes at 8 feet, including MRSA and C. difficile.
Published studies, including one funded by the CDC Epicenters Program and published in Infection Control and Hospital Epidemiology, conclude that ultraviolet-C (UV-C) can decrease the bioburden of important pathogens by causing breaks in microbial DNA that make genetic replication impossible, thus destroying the organisms or rendering them unable to grow or reproduce.
The Optimum-UV System is available in two configurations:
The Optimum-UV offers downloadable device usage data via an optional Windows-based tablet or data download software. Its intuitive user interface features an easy-to-use touchscreen. The remote control function allows for remote starting and stopping, with a range of 20 feet through walls, and acts as serves as a safety mechanism to stop a cycle in case of an emergency. Other safety features include polymer-encapsulated UV lamps and infrared motion sensors to prevent operation if people are present. And, the device is light enough so it can be easily moved throughout your facility.
In addition to the features of the Optimum-UV, the Optimum-UV Enlight® offers advanced data collection and reporting capabilities that help healthcare facilities ensure that they are maximizing their device usage and getting the efficacy they are counting on.
