Stratford Place Utilizes State-of-the-Art Germ Killing Robot Technology
Stratford Place - Assisted Living and Memory Care, is proud to announce an investment in a State-of-the Art germicidal Robot. This highly effective germ-killing technology uses high intensity ultraviolet (UV-C) energy to kill dangerous pathogens such as coronavirus, norovirus, C.Diff, influenza and MRSA. UV-C Robots are typically used in acute care hospitals for disinfection, particularly in isolation rooms, ICU’s, and operating rooms. Peer-reviewed studies1 have shown that precise UV wavelengths are effective in reducing and eliminating unhealthy bacterial and viral organisms. Data has shown a 99.99% kill rate of these germs on typical surfaces including non-direct shadow areas due to the unique patented technology this Robot utilizes.
“As part of our commitment to ensure the health and well-being of our residents and staff, we are excited to introduce this powerful disinfection Robot (affectionately named Rosie) to complement and expand our stringent cleaning protocols. They will be a great help in eliminating harmful microorganisms throughout the facility“, said Thomas Kenny, Stratford Place President.
Respiratory viruses like COVID-19, SARS-CoV, and MERS-CoV can survive in the air and on surfaces for extended periods of time. Studies indicate these characteristics can be significant factors in disease transmission2. The UV germicidal disinfection Robot like the one used by Stratford Place have been demonstrated to greatly reduce or eliminate viruses like COVID-19 quickly and efficiently without the use of chemicals1,3,4.
“Stratford Place is thrilled to incorporate this innovative technology into its Assisted Living and Memory Care home, usually reserved only for academic and acute care hospitals, to keep our residents and staff healthy and safe. Purchasing this cutting-edge Robot, with a demonstrated capability of destroying these hearty and tough germs, was a “no brainer” said Kenny.
