Improved healthcare has increased the life expectancy for us all. As our population ages, we become more vulnerable to infections. Nursing homes, aged-care facilities and long-term care facilities need to be able to protect their residents.
Surfaces can contain multi- drug-resistant bacteria that can cause serious illness in the elderly.
So how can you protect your residents from contracting these infections? MUVi UV disinfection not only takes as little as 10 minutes for a small room, it can quickly be used between room use. As MUVi is not a chemical, it does not leave a chemical residue that could be of worry. Although one of the most deadly flu seasons have just passed, its not only influenza that can be dangerous to the elderly. UV disinfection kills surface viruses like norovirus, tuberculosis, MRSA, VRE, C. diff, and more – keeping workers, elderly and even their families safe from opportunistic infections.
