practices leave contamination on OR surfaces that can
contribute to Surgical Site Infections. Xenex’s pulsed xenon
ultraviolet (UV) light disinfection technology quickly destroys the viruses, bacteria
and spores, including C.diff, that cause SSIs. A peer-reviewed study currently in
press demonstrates how a hospital achieved a 100 percent decrease in SSIs after
it began using Xenex for terminal cleans of its ORs. While that facility uses the
Xenex robot on terminal cleans at night, other ORs utilize the Xenex robot before
total joint cases and/or after dirty cases, reporting a return on investment as a result
of fewer infections.
shown, in multiple peer-reviewed published studies, to help hospitals reduce HAI rates –
with hospitals reporting greater than 50 percent reductions in C.diff, MRSA and SSI
rates. For more information, visit: www.xenex.com
Zimmer Biomet’s Safety Station and Reusable Canisters
The Safety Station’s closed sink design protects employees from fluid exposure risks
common with traditional suction canister disposal methods. During the cleaning process inside
the Safety Station, an EPA approved disinfecting agent is applied to the canister, enabling easy
and safe reuse. For more information, visit: www.zimmer.com

Baptist Health has continued to focus on enhancing quality and
patient safety by integrating Xenex Germ-Zapping Robots TM
into their overall infection prevention strategy.
Xenex Robots are the only UV disinfection technology shown
in multiple peer reviewed published studies to reduce hospital
acquired infection (HAIs) rates.
