Princeton Community Hospital (PCH) recently installed the Tru-D SmartUVC Room Decontamination System to help disinfect environmental surfaces in patient rooms and in operating room suites.

"Tru-D technology is an automated, remotely operated mobile disinfection system that self-adjusts to the size and content dynamics of any room to deliver an ideal dose of cleansing germicidal ultraviolet light to the space. Ultraviolet light has been used for many years in a variety of applications for food, air and water purification. UV light is effective in destroying the DNA of bacteria, viruses and spores, thus rendering them harmless," explained Larry Perdue, RN, BSN, director of surgical services at PCH.
