“Once Ebola has infected a community, how can the virus be eradicated from hospital and healthcare rooms that previously housed patients with Ebola? The answer is high tech, Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiant Devices (UVGI) used in hospital and health care settings to disinfect hospital rooms and equipment effectively. UVGI harnesses UV-C, 254nm energy f bulbs that irradiate surfaces, objects and air to disinfect from deadly diseases such as Ebola, Tuberculosis and Lassa. UVGI devices kill microorganisms that spread disease and are being employed more frequently in healthcare settings in the U.S. and globally.”
This article (link below), states the affects of our machines in helping to kill the Ebola virus.
Standard, contact, and airborne precautions are recommended for management of hospitalized patients with known or suspected MERS-CoV infection, based on CDC’s case definition for patient under investigation. Note that additional infection prevention precautions or considerations may be needed if a MERS-CoV patient has other conditions or illnesses that warrant specific measures (e.g., tuberculosis,Clostridium difficile, multi-drug resistant organisms).
Though these recommendations focus on the hospital setting, the recommendations for personal protective equipment (PPE), source control (i.e., placing a facemask on potentially infected patients when outside of an airborne infection isolation room), and environmental infection control measures are applicable to any healthcare setting.
