Impact of an Automated Multiple Emitter Whole-Room Ultraviolet-C Disinfection System on Hospital Acquired Infections: A Quasi-experimental Study
See t.ly/oVFN — A quasi-experimental study performed in a pediatric hematology-oncology unit demonstrated that whole-room ultraviolet-C disinfection was associated with a significant reduction in hospital-onset Clostridioides difficile infection (p<0.01, trend and level), but not healthcare-associated viral respiratory infections (p=0.06 for trend, p=0.36 for level) or central line-associated bloodstream infections (p>0.75, trend and level).
