SteriLux Systems Industry Applications
Infection Prevention – Improvement Needed
In the United States, 1 in 31 hospital patients is treated for at least one Health Care-Associated Infection (HAI) each day. Unfortunately, this translates over 700,000 infections, 75,000 deaths and a $31.5 Billion cost to the health care industry each year. Further, the CDC published data that showed an average of 120 patients per day became infected with COVID-19 inside of US Hospital walls.
The safest environments will have all bases covered for infection prevention, and our easy-to-use SteriLocker is here to help with a rapid sterilization solution for known pathogen transmitters – White Coats, Footwear, and Devices.
Hand Sanitizer For White Coats – Without the Mess
For Medical Practitioners and Staff, the SteriLocker should be deployed in hospital locker rooms or chart rooms to facilitate multiple white coat, footwear, and device sterilizations each day. The SteriLocker can also sit in the patient waiting area to help limit the pathogen load inside the hospital, and show hospital visitors that community safety is a top priority.
The benefits of SteriLocker go beyond its sterilization capabilities and include a mobile application to track usage and measure compliance. The SteriLocker mobile app can also be used to gain insights for workflow optimizations and to understand the activities that cause people to feel the most at-risk.
The Sterilocker has been proven effective in killing some of the most rampant nosocomial (HAI-causing) pathogens including MRSA, E. coli, and Pseudomonas. A recent study conducted by the National Emerging Infectious Diseases Laboratories at Boston University showed that the germicidal UVC LED’s in SteriLocker, from Klaran by Crystal IS, are proven to kill the SARS COV-2 Virus after just seconds of exposure.
The Right Solution
Now, more than ever, the world needs infection prevention solutions in health care to reduce the risk of pathogen transmissions. SteriLux Systems is the right solution for health care to set the standard in garment sterilization and to make hospitals and healthcare facilities as safe as they can possibly be.
