Superbugs No Longer Ride In Rescue Vehicles
Date:1/15/2014

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla., Jan. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In an unprecedented effort to curb the spread of "superbugs" such as MRSA, C. difficile and TB in ambulances and other transport vehicles, an advanced and portable UV germicidal lamp manufactured by MRSA-UV is now being used by rescue personnel for the first time.

In order to prevent EMS paramedics and transport patients from coming in contact with these deadly pathogens, West Palm Beach Fire Rescue is the first in the nation to begin sanitizing the interior surfaces of its ambulance fleet with this innovative and portable UV light.

President of MRSA-UV Chris Chilvers points out that, "Unfortunately, manual cleaning of all high touch surfaces is time consuming, and recent studies indicate that it misses over 50% of all surface-surviving pathogens." Not only do these surfaces become a home for contagious microbes, but transport victims can unknowingly be carriers of many types of superbugs. "There simply isn't enough time on every call to perform nasal swabs to verify that patients are not harboring dangerous pathogens," says MRSA-UV sales director Merritt Walker.

MRSA-UV's portable Turbo-UV Ambulance Sanitizer thoroughly sanitizes the patient compartment of ambulances in less than 15 minutes, and that space can be safely reoccupied the moment the light powers off. Patients and paramedics are now assured that they have an added layer of protection with the most sterile ambulances possible.

UV germicidal lamps are well known to be both rapid and effective at destroying surface-to-air bacteria, viruses and mold, but until now this portable technology did not exist for ambulances. Turbo-UV offers a clean, green and affordable hands-free method for disinfecting all transportation vehicles.
