PRLog - Dec. 21, 2011 - PEORIA, Ariz. -- Grande Prairie Health and Rehabilitation Center has taken a proactive approach to continually enhance the facility’s environmental health program. Their latest step in this ongoing effort is deployment of mobile ultraviolet germicidal irradiation technology to disinfect indoor environments.
The Mobile Room Sanitizer, designed and manufactured by UltraViolet Devices, Inc. (UVDI) is being utilized at their Grande Prairie Health and Rehabilitation Center in Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin. The Mobile Room Sanitizer is designed to provide a measured dose of UVGI for rapid and effective surface disinfection. The device emits 360 degrees of UV-C energy and can achieve 99% disinfection of target surfaces in minutes.
“The reason the Mobile Room Sanitizer is ideal for Grande Prairie Health and Rehabilitation Center is due to its ability to deactivate viruses, bacteria and even fungal spores that otherwise could lead to health concerns,” reported Nick Orlando from Filtration Concepts, the Wisconsin company that distributes products for UVDI in the state. “This technology is a perfect compliment for healthcare cleaning and sanitation programs in these types of environments.”
Tom Johnson, the Environmental Director at Grande Prairie Health and Rehabilitation Center, stated, “This proactive green technology enhances our infection prevention programs and any possible cross contamination issues. The Mobile Room Sanitizer is portable, which means it can be easily moved from room to room. It also means less cleaning chemicals, which is good for the environment and reduces potential fumes that could otherwise impact the indoor air quality (IAQ). We are excited about implementing this proven technology at more locations in the near future.”
