LAS VEGAS, March 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The patented Health Risk Management System (HRMS) complements infection control programs by reducing infectious bacteria in the air at room level. The system, manufactured by American Green Technology®, combines the proven disinfection technology of UV-C above a standard ceiling light. The HRMS is an "always on" system, minimizing airborne bacteria on a continuous basis while reducing the level of bacteria that settles on surfaces. A set of four ultra-quiet fans draws the airborne bacteria into the UV-C chamber while other UV-C technologies work at peak performance when the bacteria are in the line of sight.
Environmental Disinfection Management, LLC is a Master Distributor and currently leading the development of the HRMS Evidence-Based Partner Program, which provides onsite application and implementation recommendations to healthcare facilities.
The threat of Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAIs) is a growing issue in healthcare facilities across the US. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC): every day 1 in 25 hospitalized patients contracts an infection during their visit; every year 2,000,000 people in the U.S. acquire antibiotic resistant infections and at least 23,000 die as a result, and; the economic burden may be as high as $45 billion/year.
"Our relationship with healthcare professionals is based on years of compassion and understanding of our client's mission. The HRMS provides a cleaner, safer environment for patients and healthcare staff," states Jay Comeaux, Managing Director of Environmental Disinfection Management, LLC. "The results of our Evidence-Based Partners Program continue to confirm that the HRMS can positively impact the healthcare industry," declares Mr. Comeaux.
The HRMS' design allows for implementation in areas where there is the potential for an outbreak or unusually higher levels of bacteria present. Some areas of concern are EDs, hematology departments, ICU, NICU, and suites for oncology, geriatric and TB-isolation patients.
