Poor disinfection processes, poor patient outcomes.
U.S. acute care hospitals an estimated 722,000 infections are caught by patients receiving care each year, of which about 75,000 died during their hospitalization.1 More than half of these infections occurred outside of intensive care units (ICU), adding more burden to overwhelmed hospital Infection Preventionists.
To combat this public health crisis, many hospitals have adopted automated surface disinfection technologies, like UV-C emitting robots, to improve hospital environmental hygiene. While these technologies may demonstrate pathogen reductions in lab studies, germicidal efficacy is many steps removed from HAI reduction -- too many hospitals continue to see high infection rates despite adopting an automated disinfection technology.
Device efficacy is many steps removed from HAI reduction.
Approximately 4% of patients will acquire an HAI during their hospital stay, of which a fraction due to a contaminted environment in the many rooms they've transferred. Tens to hundreds of UV disinfections are required to prevent a single HAI.
UV disinfection is costly to do wrong but can generate significant return on investment (ROI) when implemented strategically. There are few infection prevention methods capable of reducing facility-wide infection rates 19-34%.2,3
Through multiple clinical studies and years of hands-on experience, the CSGI System allows hospitals to fully benefit from UV disinfection without adversely impacting hosptital operations.3
CSGI offers the only complete UV-C program, CSGI’s Comprehensive HAI/Cost Reduction Service, which includes 24/7 onsite UV-C technicians, implementation and utilization training, CSGI’s Automated Management Platform (CSGI AMP), infection prevention education, and best in market no-touch disinfection technology.
CSGI's products remove obstacles from effectively implementing UV to reduce HAIs and associated costs. Learn more...
