Ondine Biomedical’s MRSAID(TM) Technology Demonstrates Successful Results in Reducing Surgical Site Infections
Date:12/12/2012

which treated more than 5000 patients saw a decrease in SSIs from 4 to 1.25 cases per month, resulting in the freeing of 533 patient beds and an addition of 138 surgeries performed. During the course of the study actual occurrences of SSIs dropped from 85 to 50 cases.

“The results of this project mark a global first for photodisinfection as a non-antibiotic approach to significant reductions in surgical site infections, one of the leading sources of healthcare associated infections,” said Carolyn Cross, Chairman and CEO of Ondine Biomedical Inc., the global leader of photodisinfection technologies. “As a partner in this initiative, we want to thank the dedicated team members at VGH for their pioneering work in the field of non-antibiotic infection control and patient safety, and for their willingness to champion innovation and change.”

Preliminary results on MRSAid nasal decolonization have been presented at two infectious disease conferences. Dr. Titus Wong and his team at Vancouver General Hospital (VGH) won the John Conly Innovation Academy Award at the AMMI - CACMID Annual Conference for their implementation of a universal nasal decolonization program.

“We are proud to be the first hospital in Canada and in North America to implement a program using this combined approach of innovative light-activated technology that will prevent patients from contracting infections post-surgery,” said Dr. Titus Wong, Medical Microbiologist, Vancouver General Hospital. “Not only will this new approach prevent infections and reduce costs, but it will also allow us to reinvest that saved money into direct patient care.”
