Did you know UV lamps can be used in the hospital sanitation process?

Did you know that UV light is being used to aid in hospital room sanitation? Some hospitals have already begun using UVC machines on a trial basis, in addition to standard chemical disinfection to kill potentially dangerous bacteria such as: methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE). Several hospitals are testing UVC machines in hospital rooms where patients were infected with the bacterias. For about 30 minutes, the machine emits UVC light into an empty room, the light bouncing and reflecting into hard-to-reach areas such as open drawers or between cabinets and fixtures. The light waves kill bacteria by disrupting their DNA. The researchers found that adding UV light to their normal bleach regimen was successful, cutting VRE transmission by 64 percent.
