“Infection control regimes have come under greater scrutiny as a result of the 2019 pandemic”
For many years Daro UV has been working with the NHS and private healthcare practitioners. Our experience gives us a deep understanding that patient safety is at the forefront of anyone practicing in the healthcare sector and that infection prevention and control (IPC) protocols are key to risk assessment and decision making.
According to Infection Control Today, infection control risks can lead to significant patient and staff harm. Examples of risks include:
- Lack of hand hygiene
- Unsafe injection practices
- Poor cleaning, disinfection, sterilisation of instruments and scopes
- Inadequate environmental cleaning
As viruses are known to build up resistance to antibiotics and chemical disinfectants infection control procedures need to be robust. When ultraviolet (UV) light disinfection is an integral part of the cleaning protocol greater defence against healthcare associated infections (HCAI’s) and infection control can be achieved.
Exposure to UV photons prevents microorganism cell replication. Bacteria and viruses have known, but, limited repair mechanisms that are easily overwhelmed. Unlike antibiotics and chemical disinfectants, bacteria and viruses, crucially, have not been shown to systematically develop further resistance to UV.
Ultraviolet (UV) radiation is capable of disinfecting surfaces, water and air. Effective disinfection of environmental surfaces is a key step in the prevention of spread of infectious agents. The traditional manual cleaning is essential in assuring adequate elimination of contamination. However, due to available time and non-standardised protocols terminal cleaning is frequently suboptimal or unpredictable in many circumstances. UV radiation is an adjunctive disinfectant proven technology that disarms a wide array of microorganisms including both vegetative and spore forming pathogens.
The advantages of UV solutions are:
- Cost effective
- Saves time – faster-acting than alternatives that can take hours
- Chemical-free and chemical residual-free – no time to wait after a UV cycle
- Disables vegetative and spore forming pathogens
