Our UVC + ozone technology eliminates up to 99.999% of the dangerous pathogens that are carried on footwear and cause healthcare-associated infections including Clostridium Difficile, Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Escherichia coli, and Enterococcus faecalis.
With Healthcare-Associated Infections and Drug-Resistant Infections on the rise, Hospitals, Pharmacies, Assisted Living Facilities, and other Healthcare Facilities are utilizing UVZone® technology to enhance their existing disinfection protocols to reduce infections caused by healthcare-associated pathogens.
The CDC estimated that 1 in 25 patients admitted into a hospital contracted a Healthcare-Associated Infection (HAI). The average cost of care for just one HAI is ~$22,000. Every day billions of pathogens are walking into healthcare facilities.
The average pair of shoe soles is carrying over 800,000 colony-forming units (cfus) of bacteria as well as viruses, molds, and fungi. In fact, according to a 2017 independent study, over 75% of people walking into a hospital carried MRSA, C. diff, and other pathogens on the soles of their shoes. An easy-to-use and effective shoe disinfection solution enhances a facility’s infection prevention strategy.
What our UVZone Customers are Saying
“We have always had a lower than expected HAI rate at our facility. However, since the inception of the PathO3Gen Solutions UVZone shoe disinfection technology and other infection control measures, we have reduced our rate by 53%.”
–Debi Martoccio, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at AdventHealth Connerton
“We at Clear Choice Health Care, LLC (Skilled Nursing and Assisted Living) believe so strongly in the PathO3Gen Solutions Ozone+UVC disinfection technology that I recommended all 11 of the facilities we manage implement PathO3Gen Solutions’ UVZone Shoe Sanitizing Stations to ensure that each facility was doing all they could to provide a visible sign of safety, and maintain cleaner environments. Being the first in Florida to create an All-Covid facility (Dolphin Point Healthcare), I was excited to find this new technology to help stop the spread of pathogens, including coronavirus.”
— Geoff Fraser, Senior Vice President Of Operations And Marketing, Clear Choice Health Care, LLC
“It’s been great to be able to show the community our commitment to safety by incorporating the PathO3Gen Solutions UVZone Shoe Sanitizing Station. It’s so simple to use and takes only a few seconds.”
— Bartlee Norton, Executive Director, Sweetwater Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, Sweetwater, TN
“The reaction from Norton Heathcare Systems and Care Centers Consulting Nursing Home facilities has been very positive. Not just from the results of reducing HAIs and Coronavirus, but the responses from staff and patients who see that these organizations are taking every step possible to help keep their facilities safer.”
–Ed Marcellino, VP, Be U.V. Well (Distributor)
ADVENTHEALTH CASE STUDY – HAI Reduction
AdventHealth Connerton is a 77-bed specialty hospital, designed to serve people who have medically complex illnesses requiring additional weeks of specialized hospital care.
In February 2019, AdventHealth Connerton added 8 UVZone® Shoe Sanitizing Stations (SSS) to their existing infection control measures, to reduce the spread of pathogens throughout their facility.
Between February 2019 and September 2019, the stations allowed AdventHealth Connerton to achieve a 34% reduction in HAIs while their facility was under construction.
By March 2020, AdventHealth continued to decrease the microbial load in their facility, resulting in a total 53% drop in Healthcare-Associated Infections.
ADVENTHEALTH CASE STUDY – PHARMACY AUDIT
After implementing UVZone Shoe Sanitizing Stations, the Pharmacy achieved a negative (0%) result for pathogen growth in a pharmacy audit for the first time ever.
