Aspen Mountain Medical Center Enhances Infection Prevention by Implementing UV-C Technology
At Aspen Mountain Medical Center, patient care and safety remains top priority.
That’s why they’ve implemented Surfacide UV-C Technology, an innovative disinfecting method that goes the extra mile to better protect patients against hospital acquired infections.
UV-C treatments are a secondary process to ensure that no areas are missed in the cleaning process. This innovative technology has the ability to laser map a room, and determine the appropriate amount of energy and time needed to effectively kill pathogens.
UV-C Technology kills viruses and bacteria by using light to breakdown their DNA. This prevents those pathogens from spreading, and is an extra step in ensuring patient safety in their facility.
TheirÂ Surfacide UV-CÂ system has proven effective against many viruses and bacteria, including C-diff, MRSA, VRE, CRE and the current COVID-19. This high tech system is an added layer of security to ensure the safety of each individual who walks into Aspen Mountain Medical Center.
