Valencia, CA, May 21st, 2012 -- UVDI, a leading provider of ultraviolet (UV) disinfection and molecular filtration technologies, will be exhibiting at the Association of Professionals in Infection Control’s (APIC) 2012 Annual Educational Conference & International Meeting. The 39th meeting is taking place in San Antonio, Texas from June 4th through the 6th.
According to the conference website the event, “…is the most comprehensive gathering dedicated to infection prevention clinical education. Offering focused learning sessions, a solutions-filled expo hall, and ample networking opportunities, APIC 2012 provides healthcare professionals with unparalleled opportunities to learn from and engage with infection prevention experts.”
The costs and risks associated with healthcare acquired infections (HAIs) are enormous. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “Approximately 1 out of every 20 hospitalized patients will contract an HAI.” The CDC estimates there are approximately 1.7 million HAIs contracted annually adding over $30 billion in annual medical costs in the U.S.
UV disinfection products developed by UVDI provide infection control professionals with new tools to combat these HAIs. “Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) is a proven method of surface and air disinfection and has been used safely for many years in numerous industries,” reported Richard Hayes, President of UltraViolet Devices, Inc. “Now, UVDI is applying its 20 years of industry leading UV disinfection experience to provide the healthcare sector with new weapons to mitigate surface transmitted pathogens such as MRSA and C. diff,” he continued.
