ProMedica hospital adds UV light disinfection robot

ProMedica Toledo (Ohio) Hospital has tapped a sanitizing robot to help disinfect its operating rooms and neurological intensive care unit.

The robot emits broad spectrum ultraviolet light to quickly destroy microorganisms on hospital surfaces and can deactivate SARS-CoV-2 — the virus that causes COVID-19 — in two minutes. 

ProMedica said the robot also uses cloud technology to report such metrics as who last handled the device, how long it ran and which rooms have been disinfected.

The robot was funded through ProMedica's risk management grant program, which supports the addition of new technologies to improve patient outcomes and employee safety.
