Demonstration model of a Clinell UV-360 Room Sanitiser Device including two bulbs with protective cases, Ultra Violet Devices Inc., California, USA, 2017
The Clinell UV-360 room sanitiser uses ultraviolet light to clean hospital rooms in a bid to lower and prevent healthcare associated infections (HCAIs). Designed to be used in collaboration with regular cleaning methods, the Clinell UV-360 acts as a double check. Left turned on in a room for 20 minutes, the UV light kills 99.99% of Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MSRA) and Clostridium difficile infections (CDI). As UV light in high doses can cause skin redness and conjunctivitis, the machine has four safety motion sensors which shut the device down if it senses movement.
Reducing HCAIs is a key priority for all healthcare settings including the NHS. Between 2016 and 2017, there were an estimated 653 000 HCAIs among 13.8 million adult inpatients in hospitals in England. Healthcare associated infections add to the length of a person’s hospitals stay and can sometimes have long lasting impacts.
