UV Bacteria-Killing Robot Cleans Hospital Rooms far Better than Humans

Hospital-acquired infections are needlessly running rampant, perhaps modern cleaning techniques are simply not powerful enough. But there is hope – UV bacteria-killing robots.

Healthcare facilities are havens for recovery and rehabilitation. But the healing process would be impossible without the stringent sanitization practices and procedures medical professionals use to prevent health care facilities from becoming reservoirs of unwanted, or potentially harmful bacteria and other microorganisms.

Maintaining a clean and safe healthcare environment is a top priority, and while significant progress has been made in sanitization methods, major improvements must still be made. According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), even with modern sanitization protocols, on any given day, about one in 25 hospital patients will acquire at least one healthcare-associated infection.

Current manual cleaning methods are nearly helpless in combating against bacteria, but the battle is not lost. Infection prevention technologies are giving rise to a new era of ultra-clean hospital’s and emergency care facilities with the implementation of highly-efficient UV-disinfection robots.
