How does your UV disinfection system impact OR
Advanced Ultra-Violet Systems: Since the AUVS KR615
is a germicidal enclosure all UV is safely contained
within the unit. This mean the KR615 can be used
where and when patients and staff are present allowing devices to be sanitized any time, as needed – both
during room use and on turnover. This smooths workflow as the opportunity to sanitize devices is not limited.
With an independent lab-confirmed decontamination
rate of 99.9 percent during just a 48-second cycle,
the KR 615 fills a significant gap when robots can’t be
used. By filling this gap in the fight against HAIs, the
KR615 will provide potential benefits including reduced
readmissions and reduced incidence of surgical site
infections thereby lessening the burden on the OR
and the hospital as a whole with an ultimate goal of
improved patient outcomes.
Clorox: The Optimum-UV Enlight™ System’s smart
data capabilities help do the heavy lifting to improve
infection control processes and minimize workflow
challenges so that UV can be seamlessly integrated
into operating room disinfection practices. The system
tracks in real-time where, when and how the device is
working to help with workflow monitoring and reporting.
The diagnostic data generated by the system provides
automated alerts to inform users and managers about
maintenance needs and to identify areas for targeted
staff training. The advanced data collection and reporting capabilities also help healthcare facilities ensure that
they are maximizing their device usage while minimizing
workflow challenges. For example, the cloud-based data
reporting site features compliance tracking capability
so that managers can easily track if the device is being
used as expected.
The system also features an enhanced user interface
with a large, easy-to-use color touchscreen that
enables users to manage location and operator information for automated usage tracking that is accessible
in real time. An iOS and Android app allows users to
remotely check UV cycle status and start or stop the
device. In addition to the smart data features on
the device, Clorox Healthcare provides extensive
on-site training to ensure that facilities are maximizing
