Infections in Hospitals

Microbial threats, especially antibiotic-resistant bacteria, continue to be a problem for hospitals in the United States and around the world. Conventional cleaning methods can prevent germs from spreading, but all have their limitations.​

"In 2014, results of a project known as the HAI Prevalence Survey were published. The Survey described the burden of HAIs in U.S. hospitals, and reported that, in 2011, there were an estimated 722,000 HAIs in U.S. acute care hospitals.

 

Additionally, about 75,000 patients with HAIs died during their hospitalizations. More than half of all HAIs occurred outside of the intensive care unit."

"At any given time, about 1 in every 25 patients has an infection related to their hospital care. Healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) not only affect patient lives, but also add to our growing healthcare costs."

airPHX clean air technology is a proactive strategy for improving health conditions. Deploy airPHX devices in contaminated spaces with occupants, or place them in high-risk areas for continuous treatment of surfaces and the air.​

  • Intensive Care Units

  • Infectious Disease Units

  • Emergency Rooms

  • Operating Rooms

Technology deployed in just one common area can provide hospital-wide benefits as airPHX clean air circulates through HVAC ductwork.
