Implementation and impact of ultraviolet environmental disinfection in an acute care setting. 

Haas J, Menz J, Dusza S, Montecalvo MA; American Journal of  Infection Control 2014, 42:586-90. 

Abstract

Multiple-drug-resistant organisms (MDROs) and Clostridium difficile (CD) are significant problems in health care. Evidence suggests that these organisms are transmitted to patients by the contaminated environment.

This is a retrospective study of the implementation of ultraviolet environmental disinfection (UVD) following discharge cleaning of contact precautions rooms and other high-risk areas at Westchester Medical Center, a 643-bed tertiary care academic medical center. Incidence rates of hospital-acquired MDROs plus CD before and during the UVD use were evaluated using rate ratios and piecewise regression.
