  Getting sick while getting treatment at a hospital can be a patient's worst nightmare.

Doctor Jeffrey Stephens says, "When we have people in isolation in a hospital we are trying to keep it from transmitting from an ill person to another ill person."

And the TRU-D Smart UVC is just what the doctor ordered. This new piece of technology uses powerful ultra violet lights to eliminate any bacteria, improving upon the old fashioned way of cleaning or disinfecting patient areas.  

Doctor Stephens says," Even when using the standard cleaning there are certain organisms that are very difficult to kill. It can maintain on surfaces for weeks or even longer. So this technology allows us to get at more resistant organisms and kill them. "

According to healthcare experts the TRU-D has proven effective.

“We want to provide world class care we want to try and do the best that we can and these newer technologies are ways that we are trying to do that," said Dr. Stephens.
