Stop Surface Pathogens Before They Become HAIs
Each year, healthcare facilities spend $35-$45 billion as a direct cost of healthcare-associated infections (HAI) and disease transmission[i]. In the US alone, HAIs affect one in 25 people and account for 72,000 deaths yearly.

That’s because bacteria can be easily transmitted through commonly-touched surfaces like keyboards, point-of-sale terminals, tablets, phones, medical equipment, even furniture. Healthcare facilities are fighting this battle with multiple measures like harsher cleaning chemicals, UV-C robot room cleaners, attempts at stricter hand-washing policies, and more.
They’re all good practices, but ineffective on their own.
Save Time, Save Money, Save Lives
Frequently- touched and difficult-to-clean technology continues to converge at the patient bedside and is a source of disease transmission pathways. Consider the enormous expansion of medical record devices with sensitive electronics like touchscreens and keyboards. Many of these devices are touched hundreds of times a day, placing an unrealistic burden on hospital staff tasked with cleaning them properly and frequently. Simply put, surface contamination is occurring more frequently than disinfection cleaning can occur. What’s worse is this contaminated equipment can often travel between patient rooms and hospital departments.
