A ruthless killer who moves at the speed of light
She’s just 5’5” and quiet, but don’t let her demure looks fool you—she’s a ruthless killer who moves at the speed of light. Meet Tru-D, the newest member of Vancouver General Hospital’s (VGH) Housekeeping and Infection Control teams.
Where will Tru-D be used?The machine will be used to disinfect patient isolation rooms, operating rooms and the bronchoscopy and endoscopy suites at VGH.
How Tru-D can help us fight the fluSo far this is shaping up to be a worse than average season for norovirus and the flu, and using UV light disinfection devices could allow us to help contain outbreaks in our facilities.
Is it safe? UV light has been used to disinfect the air in health care facilities and in laboratories for years. The UV light the machine produces does not go through glass windows or doors.
