IDWeek is presented by the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA), the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America (SHEA), the HIV Medicine Association (HIVMA), and the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society (PIDS). IDWeek is the first-ever combined meeting of these four societies.
Infectious diseases are the primary topic of this event and healthcare professionals in attendance will be learning about the latest methods to prevent healthcare associated infections (HAIs). The costs and risks associated with HAIs are enormous, in fact the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states, “Approximately 1 out of every 20 hospitalized patients will contract an HAI.”
Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) is a proven method of surface and air disinfection and has been used safely for many years in a number of industries. UVDI has applied its 20 years of UV disinfection experience to provide the healthcare sector with new tools to mitigate surface transmitted pathogens such as MRSA and C. diff.
UV disinfection products developed by UVDI provide healthcare professionals with new tools to combat the spread of infectious diseases and HAIs. Products like UVDI’s V-360 UV Room Sanitizer provide superior surface disinfection by delivering a programmed dose of ultraviolet germicidal irradiation to quickly and safely inactivate surface transmitted pathogens in healthcare environments and other settings.
To learn more stop by UVDI’s booth #638 and pick up a complimentary poster highlighting nine of the most common surface transmitted HAIs. For more information about UVDI, please visit www.UVDI.com, email info@UVDI.com or call (877) 787-3882.
