Xenex robots reduce infections by disinfecting rooms
"Multiple hospitals using Xenex robots have experienced HAI rate reductions after the hospital began using Xenex for room disinfection,” Morris Miller, CEO of Xenex, said. “Three hospitals have published their HAI rate reductions in peer-reviewed journals and five more HAI reduction studies are in press or in review. We developed the HAI Reduction Guarantee for other hospitals and health systems that are looking for a proven solution to reduce their infection rates. Our team of experienced infection preventionists, epidemiologists and account managers work closely with hospital staff to rapidly integrate the robots into the hospital's operations to ensure their proper use and deployment, which will result in a reduction in HAI rates."
With serious infectious diseases on the rise, health professionals anticipate positive results from the new technology by Xenex.
"We have been told by hospitals using mercury bulb UV devices how bad they smell, that the devices discolor the facility floors, and they take too long to disinfect a room,” Miller said. “Many hospitals acquired mercury UV disinfection technology because they didn't understand the difference between full-spectrum pulsed xenon UV and single spectrum mercury UV light. Now they do. We support hospitals' elimination of toxic mercury in their facilities and we believe so strongly in our technology that we are willing to invest in our customers' success. The goal of this campaign is simple. We want to get our robots into hospitals quickly so fewer patients will suffer from HAIs. Xenex offers the only UV disinfection technology that utilizes pulsed xenon to create germicidal UVC light and is the only UV disinfection technology shown, in peer-reviewed published studies, to be effective in reducing HAI rates."
