Chemical free UVC Room Disinfection to eliminate VRE
A continual outbreak of Hospital Acquired Infections at Herlev Hospital – one of the largest hospitals in the Copenhagen area – impelled staff to seek out new disinfection opportunities. The hospital realized that the Dolphin Care chemical free UVC Room Disinfector covered the need they had for disinfection.
At Herlev Hospital the hygiene team has been using the Dolphin Care UVC Room Disinfector for more than 2 years in connection with outbreak of hospital infections.
The hospital has had severe challenges with VRE and therefore the patient toilets are disinfected regularly by using the satellite units – 5 minutes per toilet.
The result is a significant reduction of VRE.
