According to the conference brochure, “The Association for the Healthcare Environment of the American Hospital Association is the professional organization of choice for over 2,300 directors and managers caring for the healthcare environment across all care settings, including hospitals, long term care, continuing care retirement communities and ambulatory care. AHE represents, defines, and advances the professionals responsible for care of the healthcare environment to ensure quality outcomes and healthy communities.”
An exciting new technology for the battle against healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) will be displayed at this year’s conference by UltraViolet Devices, Inc. (UVDI) in booth #905. UVDI will showcase the V-360° Room Sanitizer which is designed to provide a measured dose of ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) for rapid and effective surface disinfection in healthcare environments. The V-360° emits 360 degrees of UV-C energy and can achieve 99% disinfection of target surfaces in minutes.
“Hospital environmental service professionals know that preventing surface transmitted nosocomial infection is a serious challenge,” reported Richard Hayes, President of UltraViolet Devices, Inc. “New technology, such as UVDI’s V-360° Room Sanitizer, provides EVS staff a powerful new weapon for inactivating infectious agents including MRSA and C. difficile.”
