Recent Report Confirms Effectiveness of Tru-D
Date:5/13/2016

The pioneer in UV disinfection, Tru-D SmartUVC continues to provide the gold standard of care, keeping patients safe by eliminating up to 99.9% of pathogens that can linger in hospital rooms. Also used in patient rooms, isolation discharges and other areas throughout medical facilities, Tru-D is seeing positive results with the use of the robot in operation rooms throughout the country.

“In my hospital, patient outcomes are of utmost importance,” said Ralph Taylor, Director of Surgical Services at Florida Hospital in Tampa, Florida. “As Director of Surgical Services, the cleanliness of the operating environments lies on my shoulders. I care enough about my patients to visit each of them post-operation and educate them on our process so that they know I use Tru-D to ensure a germ-free operating space.”

A recent report by John Boyce, MD compiles current literature on modern technology for improving cleaning and disinfection of environmental surfaces in hospitals. Boyce points out that Tru-D’s CDC multi-center, randomized controlled trial is complete and will demonstrate Tru-D's HAI reduction outcome compared to standard and enhanced surface disinfection methods. According to Boyce, the results of this study should determine the extent to which this technology can reduce hospital-acquired infections and lead to these systems being more widely adopted.

Once the hospital Environmental Services staff cleans a room using traditional methods, Tru-D is brought in to complete the process. Operating from a single position and administering a single cycle of UV light, Tru-D takes the minimum time necessary to disinfect an entire room, including shadowed areas. Tru-D cleans a typical patient room in approximately 20-25 minutes, freeing up the Environmental Services staff for other tasks during the cleaning cycle. Once the cleaning cycle is complete, Tru-D automatically shuts down and sends an audio signal to the operator that disinfection is complete.

Passavant Area Hospital in Jacksonville, Illinois has recently joined the growing number of hospitals who are investing in Tru-D. Deployed in its ORs as well as isolation discharge rooms, the robot is being used to help prevent the spread of C. diff.

“Passavant Area Hospital is committed to providing a safe and clean environment for our patients and staff,” said Kerri Barton, Manager of Environmental Services at Passavant Area Hospital. “Having Tru-D will elevate our existing cleaning protocols to add another layer of protection to ensure our facility is germ-free.”

Validated by more than a dozen independent studies, Tru-D’s combined automated, measured dosing capabilities and real-time usage-tracking feature, iTru-D, make Tru-D the most precise and advanced automated UV disinfection system available. The most studied UV disinfection robot on the market, Tru-D was the only device of its kind selected for the first-ever randomized, clinical trial of UVC disinfection. Results of the landmark Benefits of Enhanced Terminal Room Disinfection (BETR-D) study, which was funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, proved that enhanced terminal room disinfection strategies decreased the cumulative incidence of multidrug-resistant organisms such as C. diff, MRSA and VRE by up to 30 percent, and the largest decreases were seen when Tru-D was added to the standard cleaning strategy.

“Tru-D will help ensure that each room will receive the highest level of cleanliness possible, giving our patients and staff added security in their health and safety here at Passavant Area Hospital,” said Barton.
