Lehigh Valley Expands Fleet of Superbug-Slaying Robots
Date:5/21/2013

ALLENTOWN, Pa., May 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Lehigh Valley Health Network has announced the deployment of two additional TRU-D SmartUVCTM devices, adding to its existing arsenal of five 5-foot-5 germ-killing UV disinfection robots. With seven devices taking up residence within the network, LVHN is now deploying the largest fleet of TRU-Ds in the U.S. to proactively combat superbugs and provide the best possible patient care available.

Short for Total Room Ultraviolet Disinfector, TRU-D – the signature product of Memphis-based Lumalier – is the only portable UV disinfection system on the market that precisely measures reflected UV-C emissions with Sensor360™ to automatically calculate the pathogen-lethal UV dose required for proper and consistent disinfection of health care environments. LVHN was an early adopter of the technology, receiving TRU-D No. 1 in 2008.

"We had isolated clusters of infection in our burn unit and ICU," said Terry Burger , director of infection control and prevention at LVHN. "Disinfecting the rooms with TRU-D halted both clusters. Since then, we have requested funds to expand the use of this technology in our facilities. Our mission is to heal, comfort and care for the people of our community and to maintain a safe environment for our patients."

Health care-associated infections and the superbugs behind them (Clostridium difficile, Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus and carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae, just to name a few) have become a major challenge for today's health care networks. HAIs have been tied to an estimated 99,000 deaths each year and represent an estimated $30 billion a year in medical costs, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. UV disinfection technology is an attractive option for hospitals to include in their comprehensive cleaning
