9 octubre 2015

New research from infection control specialists found that ultraviolet robots helped reduce the rates transmission of the common bacterial infection known as Clostridium difficile among cancer inpatients — mostly blood cancer patients, a group more vulnerable to hospital-acquired infections — by 25 percent. The interventions also saved about $150,000 in annual direct medical costs.
