PITTSBURGH, Sept. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Tru-D SmartUVC, the gold standard in UV disinfection, will attend and exhibit at the 2016 AHE Exchange, September 25-28 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Tru-D invites attendees to its booth #515 to learn about total room disinfection and how Tru-D implements seamlessly into hospitals' workflows, saving precious dollars and reducing hospital-acquired infections.
The Association for the Healthcare Environment (AHE) of the American Hospital Association is the professional organization of choice for experts responsible for caring for the patient and resident care environment across all care settings; including hospitals, long-term care, continuing care retirement communities and ambulatory care. AHE represents, defines and advances more than 2,000 professionals working to ensure quality outcomes and healthy communities.
"Tru-D has been validated by multiple, peer-reviewed studies including the only randomized, clinical trial on UV disinfection to decrease hospital-acquired infections by 30+ percent," said Chuck Dunn, CEO and President of Tru-D SmartUVC. "Through efficient productivity and with no requirement of additional full-time employees, Tru-D helps to save money on the bottom line while keeping patients and staff safe and germ-free."
An enhanced cleaning strategy, Tru-D is brought into a room after the EVS staff cleans using traditional methods. Tru-D then operates from a single position and administers a single cycle of UV light, destroying up to 99.9 percent of harmful pathogens that can remain behind such as C. diff, MRSA, MERS, VRE, Ebola and many more. During the disinfection process, EVS staff are free to complete other tasks such as cleaning rooms, changing linens or other duties. Taking whatever time is necessary to provide total room disinfection, including in direct and shadowed areas, Tru-D alerts the operator when the cycle is complete with an audio and/or text message that the room has been thoroughly disinfected.
"Tru-D implements seamlessly into any hospital's workflow without additional full-time employees needed for operation," said Dunn. "EVS staff are able to maintain productive time and continue with other duties while the cycle is being completed. Tru-D's single placement and single cycle uniquely allow your team to work smarter, not harder, to provide a clean environment for patients and staff."
Tru-D was the only device of its kind selected for the first-ever, randomized, clinical trial on UVC disinfection because of its Sensor360 technology that precisely measures the proper UV dose for every room, eliminating any chance for human error in the disinfection process. Results of the landmark Benefits of Enhanced Terminal Room Disinfection (BETR-D) study proved that enhanced terminal room disinfection strategies decreased the cumulative incidence of multidrug-resistant organisms by 30+ percent, and the largest decreases were seen when Tru-D was added to the standard cleaning strategy.
