Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAI)
Antimicrobial resistant pathogens pose challenges to hospitals because they cause HAIs during clinical treatment of patients. Existing methods to address this challenge include expensive and dangerous cleaning chemicals and deployment of expensive UV-C technology. Both solutions incur labor costs and have limitations, and neither provides continuous and scalable protection between treatments. Emerging germicidal lightbulb (UV) technology is expensive and has limited range and effectiveness.
