Preventing Cross Contamination In a Healthcare Environment
July 18, 2017
Hosted by Nancy C. Caralla
Join us with our guest James Psihas, a graduate Engineer of University of Arizona, as we discuss preventing cross contamination in a healthcare environment. Hand held devices such as phones, iPads, stethoscopes, glucometers, telemetry boxes and more travel from room to room picking up pathogens and become vectors of cross contamination that can result in healthcare acquired infections(HAI's) such as C.diff. and MRSA. Until the implementation of Dr. Wayne Clarks Advanced UV Systems technology developed for the department of defense to kill Anthrax hospitals the healthcare industry had very few tools available to consistently decontaminate these items without damaging expensive electronics.
