This is a really interesting story to show one hospital’s approach to tackling the growing problem of hospital superbugs. The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Passavant is the latest to use UV robots for another layer of disinfection in their facility. Mark Hundley, director of environmental services at UPMC Passavant, explains their disinfecting robot, ‘Violet’. The UPMC video goes to great lengths to stress the importance of a regular cleaning regime in addition to Violet’s sterling work, and it doesn’t stop there, because there is a partnership to be had between personal and hospital hygiene both in and outside the hospitals, the equipment, furniture, and materials used in its construction, and the cleaning and maintenance regimes employed.
The following video explains their approach much better than we can! http://www.ourprg.com/?p=16247
