Northern Montana Health Care Using UV Robots in Fight Against COVID-19

Havre, Montana – The Environmental Services (EVS) team at Northern Montana Hospital (NMH) has increased their stringent disinfection efforts by adding two 2280 Syndicate ultraviolet (UV) robots to their extensive hygiene program.

The 2280 Syndicate UV disinfection robot is an advanced, paired system designed to work in tandem to emit industry leading germicidal energy with the flexibility of a dual-emitter platform. The result is very fast and highly effective disinfection treatments. The robots will be used in all of the hospital rooms, and in their operating suites.

“The 2280 Syndicate is an extremely powerful dual-emitter system that enables single-cycle, whole-room disinfection treatments in short treatment durations”, stated Eric Koch, VP of Patient Care Services. “Single cycle treatments save our busy EVS teams a great deal of time while cleaning patient rooms, treatment rooms and our operating rooms. It allows for smooth integration into their room cleaning and disinfection protocol.”

UVC robots are a key part of the disinfection efforts in the battle against Health Associated Infections (HAIs) and Surgical Site Infections (SSIs). The benefits of Skytron’s intelligent robots include the automated calculation of treatment times which removes human error and ensures that a complete dose of germicidal energy is thoroughly applied to all surfaces in the treatment room, including shadowed areas.

These robots are clinically proven to reduce HAIs caused by harmful Multi-Drug Resistant Organisms (MDROs) including Acinetobacter Baumannii, Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus, Pseudomonas Aeruginosa, and Vancomycin-Resistant Enterococcus. Studies report the effectiveness of UV disinfection along with current cleaning strategies reduces post-surgical infections rates.

“NMH has added two of these robots to our team” adds Mr. Koch. “We’re so pleased to be able to bring this technology to our organization and our community. Being able to ensure the highest levels of cleanliness is so important to us, especially with the challenges brought on by the novel corona virus.”
