Providers to Proactively Reduce Hospital Acquired InfectionsWorld’s Fastest Infection Prevention Robots Will Help Healthcare Providers
Save Over $35 Billion Annually in direct HAI Costs.
Hospitals and other healthcare facilities are a breeding ground for antibiotic resistant bacteria. When a patient develops a healthcare acquired infection (HAI) during their treatment in the facility, the costs for the patient and facility can be significant. Over 270 people a day die from HAIs worldwide and the World Health Organization estimates it costs healthcare providers over $35 billion to treat HAI patients each year.
Healthcare acquired infections (HAIs) continue to be a major problem in the United States and throughout the developed world. Drug-resistant microorganisms, such as methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), C-difficile, and the norovirus, are particularly dangerous. Though the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) work with state and local officials to help contain and prevent HAIs, statistics show that effective action is needed at the institutional level to curb their deadly and costly effects.
Driven to eradicate hospital acquired infections, IPT’s NextGen UV light disinfection robots are the most powerful and effective technology available.
“The IPT technology allows us to present a full package of advanced UV robotic technologies to healthcare providers and our healthcare partners worldwide”, says David Mehney, Skytron’s Chief Executive Officer. “Adding this technology to our portfolio will help lessen hospital acquired infections, save lives and improved patient outcomes.”
