UV-C is the most effective system to decontaminate the infected environment and protect against future MRSA outbreaks
Hospital MRSA infection is one of the biggest concerns in healthcare industry. The efficacy of UV-C decontamination in reducing acquisition of MRSA and hospital outbreak was studied.
The Ultra-V™ UV-C system was used to perform environmental decontamination on a gastroenterology ward infected with MRSA.
After manual cleaning was not effective, the Ultra-V™ system was used. Swabs taken afterwards came back negative for MRSA.
