UV-C Light Sterilisation in Care Homes

The Covid Pandemic has been a strategic infection control challenge amongst UK businesses, and specifically care homes. The sector has been playing catch-up since Covid-19 first took hold. There is no doubt that immediate, acute challenges remain for the sector, alongside the requirement to protect robustly against future diseases. Put simply, another 2020 is unthinkable.

These sterilisation units suck air in and expose the air to UV-C light which disinfects it before it is pushed out as clean air. The real benefit of these Covid-busting devices is that they can be used at the same time as rooms are occupied.

The virus responsible for Covid-19 is spread in three main ways: via contaminated surfaces; via small droplets from speaking or coughing; and transmission by aerosols – the inhalation of invisible particles exhaled by an infected person.

The point about long-term investment is key. UV sterilisation units will work against any new Covid strains. These units are equally effective in sterilising air from more regular winter cold and flu bugs, along with diseases such as C.Diff. Consider also the rising cases of antibiotic resistance. The UK Government’s gov.uk website states that “failure to address the problem of antibiotic resistance could result in an estimated 10 million deaths globally by 2050.”

“We have now installed air-sterilisation units across our Glenfields site at a cost of approximately £200 per room. That’s a small price to pay for the safety and well-being of our residents. We’re obviously addressing an immediate challenge but the investment has been made for the long- term – we want to be as protected as possible.”
