At RMH, we know that the safety of our patients depends on the cleanliness of our facility. This is why we have invested in cutting edge disinfection technology that uses UVC light to break down the genetic material of viruses and bacteria. UVC disinfection, which follows traditional cleaning, adds a second layer of protection for our patients.
RMH has two UVC “robots”. The larger Tru-D ‘robot” is used in the main hospital areas, including the Emergency Room. The smaller MoonBeam “robot” by Diversey, is used to disinfect smaller areas, such as treatment rooms. The MoonBeam device is portable, so our expanded Environmental Services staff can use it in all of our outbuildings, including Healthcare Associates, Walk-In Care, Pediatrics and Pain Management. MoonBeam can even be used to treat our patient shuttle and ambulance.
UVC disinfection is one of the most innovative and effective ways to prevent infection. This unique technology penetrates areas in ways that traditional cleaning cannot, destroying the reproductive ability of bacteria and viruses. We are proud to have these UVC devices in our “cleanliness and safety” toolbox.
