Healthcare workers use many high-touch items in the process of caring for their patients. Keeping those items consistently disinfected is a challenging process that is further complicated by irregular shapes and cleansing limitations, making manual decontamination difficult and questionably effective. Using cleaning products on mobile devices (phones, tablets, laptops) and other medical technology has also been proven to damage the devices, impact accuracy, and take 3-5 minutes to be effective.
NOW, for the first time, equipment disinfection and hand hygiene can be automated to a simple, 30 second process.
The RDS-32a, Rapid UVC Decontamination Cabinet System from TMG Health provides a one-touch disinfection solution that is independently certified up to a 6 Log₁₀ ¹ efficacy in only 30 seconds.
Over the past 10 years, there have been numerous studies that have determined handheld electronic devices such as tablets, communication devices and portable diagnostic equipment and high-touch, noncritical equipment such as glucometers, pulse oximeters, stethoscopes, computer keyboards etc. are carriers of potentially dangerous bacteria. In a recent Healthcare Infection Society Study  ², as much as 96% of handheld electronic devices were not regularly cleaned or disinfected of pathogenic microorganisms. This leaves healthcare workers and their patients extremely vulnerable.
It requires more than sanitized phones and communication devices to prevent the spread of infections. The number of handheld electronics and shared patient tools is now averaging ten  devices per bed. In a time of staff shortages, increased duties and continued COVID admissions; there is a definite need to simplify and
automate disinfection practices.
