All hospitals have a ethical, social and professional responsibility of ensuring that the actual patients are not leaving sicker than they arrived. Same responsibility is shared towards the visitors, doctors, care takers and other hospital staff.

Healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) constitute a huge burden for both providers and patients. These infections can hinder overall care quality, compromise outcomes, drive up care costs and drain hospital resources. A comprehensive infection prevention strategy is necessary to address the burden of HAIs, and including ultraviolet disinfection in that strategy can help support infection control goals.

It has been noted there are a number of factors that contribute to HAIs, such as contact with other patients, contact with healthcare workers and the hospital environment. Environmental contamination can affect patients in two ways — via direct contact and indirectly through healthcare workers or family members who touch devices and surfaces in patient rooms and then interact with them. Patient rooms see a lot of traffic, with healthcare workers, patients and family members moving around and going in and out of the room. All surfaces need to be disinfected with equal vigour although some surfaces are touched more frequently than others.

UVC disinfection systems are a no-touch disinfection technology that has been proven to be an effective way to ensure complete surface decontamination. Studies have shown that UVC can disinfect not only high-touch surfaces and frequented areas of a patient room but also the surfaces that may go overlooked as targets for disinfection, such as below patient beds or the backsides of chairs.

"Hence all hospitals must make UVC technology a part of their Comprehensive Infection prevention strategy."
