The Facts*

According to the CDC, healthcare-associated infections (HAI) are a serious, yet often preventable, threat to patient safety. The facts: HAIs affect millions of people and add billions of dollars to healthcare costs in the US annually. The HAI National Action Plan proposed targets for 2020 are aggressive and it is imperative that hospitals continue to innovate if they are to succeed.

25

 On any given day, 1 in 25 hospital patients acquire at least one nosocomial infection or HAI.

+2,100

The average number of people in the US that contract a healthcare-associated infection per day.

4%

 That means 4% of all admissions acquire HAIs.

9%

 Did you know over 9% of total hospital inpatient costs are HAI related?

+720k

In 2011, an estimated ~722,000 patients contracted an infection in an acute care hospital in the US.


Annual HAI deaths in perspective


Critical Need

We must stop surface pathogens before they become HAIs.


Problem

Existing patient-care, EMR, & device workflow creates critical vectors for nosocomial transmissions. HAI challenges include:

  • HAI Transmission vs. Patient Care: Cross Contamination
  • Super Bugs: C-Diff, MRSA, VRSA, VRE, KPC, etc…
  • Bioburden: Device disinfection effectiveness
  • Accumulation of pathogens on devices
  • Hand sanitization affecting efficient workflow
  • Human error in workflow increases the chance of transmissions

HAI Transmissions

Clinician Patient Care-Cycle & HAI Transmissions


Clinicians disinfect their hands continuously. What about their devices and technology?


Clinician Patient Care-Cycle & HAI Transmissions with UV Angel


Solution

Healthcare leaders need technologies that reduce bioburden on hospital surfaces around the clock – independent of human intervention

  • Break the infection transmission cycle through preventive disinfection
  • Continually monitor targeted surfaces
  • Actively and automatically disinfect pathogens
  • Prevent the creation of superbugs and multidrug-resistant pathogens
  • Take surface (dis)infection out of caregiver hands



What is UV Angel

UV Angel is a paradigm-shifting technology that actively monitors and disinfects targeted surfaces – taking disinfection out of busy hands.



CLEAR


  • Reduce bioburden, cross contamination and their associated costs
  • Empower Infection Control Nurses, Doctors and Epidemiologists
  • Improve clinical safety standards hospital wide
  • Enhance hospital reputation
  • Reduce responsibilities of busy staff
  • Eliminate the potential for human error
  • Safeguard patients, caregivers, & their families

UV Angel is preventive disinfection

UV Angel eliminates superbugs multiple times a day without the need for human assistance.



How it works

UV Angel actively monitors targeted surfaces. Once new germs are introduced, our Angels eliminate the pathogen while recording its disinfection.





LED displays on the top of our Angels indicate the targeted surface’s current disinfection status




Set & Forget

UV Angel is designed to stay in the background and out of the clinician’s way. Our goal is to be invisible in every environment and every application


Engineered Intelligence


Simple by Design

All UV Angels continuously monitor device interactions creating a safe environment for  its automated disinfection process. Each interaction initiates or pauses a cleaning cycle. Each Angel:

  • Detects motion and heat
  • Works with standard touch interfaces from all-in-one computers to point-of-sale devices
  • Standard keyboards and mice
  • Bar-code hand and desktop scanners


UV Angel Activation Trigger


UV Angel’s Low-Dose UVC


Safe Disinfection

Once a cycle is initiated our Angels automatically deliver a low dose of UV-C to its target surface.  Each dose is set to a safe and optimal disinfection wavelength.

  • NO super-bug creation
  • NO dangerous chemical by-products
  • NO disposable waste
  • NO high levels of energy

Legal

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..”, comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

The standard chunk of Lorem Ipsum used since the 1500s is reproduced below for those interested. Sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 from “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” by Cicero are also reproduced in their exact original form, accompanied by English versions from the 1914 translation by H. Rackham.
