McKenzie County Healthcare Systems Invest in UVC Disinfection Robot

McKenzie County Healthcare Systems Inc. is the first hospital in the region to invest in Tru-D SmartUVC to help keep patients and staff safe from germs and hospital-acquired infections (HAIs).

The grand opening of McKenzie County Healthcare Systems Inc.’s new medical facility took place June 22, 2018. This state-of-the-art, $76.3 million facility features a brand-new hospital and clinic as well as updates to the connected Good Shepherd Home (long-term care facility) and nearby Horizon Assisted Living. The facility is comprised of 24 inpatient rooms, nine emergency room bays and two operating rooms.

“We are excited to have this innovative technology in our hospital, which will help maintain the cleanest, safest environment possible for our patients and staff,” said Dan Kelly, CEO of McKenzie County Healthcare Systems Inc. “As a new facility in the region, we hope to offer best-in-class care and service for residents in the area, and Tru-D will help elevate the level of care that we provide.”

Tru-D is a UVC disinfection robot that is deployed after the environmental services staff cleans a room using traditional protocols. Operated from a remote control outside the room, Tru-D administers a single, lethal dose of UVC energy from one, central placement in the room, killing up to 99.9% of germs and pathogens that can be left behind. Once the cycle is complete, the operator is notified via audio and/or text message that Tru-D can be moved to the next room.

“Tru-D is deployed in hundreds of hospitals throughout the U.S., and we are thrilled to expand our footprint into North Dakota,” said Chuck Dunn, CEO of Tru-D SmartUVC. “McKenzie County’s investment in Tru-D demonstrates its commitment to innovative strategies to help reduce hospital-acquired infections.”

Tru-D’s technology has been validated by more than 15 independent, third-party studies including the first and only randomized clinical trial on UVC disinfection. The Benefits of Enhanced Total Room-Disinfection (BETR-D) study proved that Tru-D can reduce the risk of acquisition and infection of four major superbugs not only from patient to patient, but throughout an entire hospital, facility-wide. Conducted throughout nine hospitals in the Duke Infection Control Outreach Network, the CDC-funded BETR-D study is the most comprehensive study on UVC disinfection to date.
