UV Disinfection ROI
Q. How many C. diff incidents would we need to prevent to make a UV disinfection robot a worthwhile investment?
- McLaren Oakland, a 328-bed inpatient hospital in Pontiac, Mich., saved $236,800 in the first 6 months after deploying an IPT UV robot. It slashed C. diff incidences by 66% and currently has a .028% C. diff rate.
- Henry Ford Hospital, an 877-bed inpatient facility in Detroit, generated an estimated $130,000-$180,000 in cost savings in the first 3 months after deployment of an IPT UVC disinfection system. Its C. diff incidences dropped from 14 cases to 1 during the three-month pilot program and the C. diff rate dropped from 24/10000PTD to 6.1/10000PTD.
If your hospital only prevents 6 incidents of C. diff, your UV disinfection robot from IPT will have paid for itself.
There’s no question. IPT’s UV disinfection robots have the potential to save lives and save hospitals money, and they can pay for themselves in as little as three months.
