Phoenix VA Health Care System Deploys Germ-Zapping Robots to Enhance Veteran Safety
Xenex Robots Destroy Pathogens that Pose a Risk to Patients, Staff & Family Members
The Phoenix Veterans Affairs (VA) Health Care System is the first hospital in Arizona to deploy Xenex LightStrike™ Germ-Zapping Robots™ to destroy deadly germs and bacteria lurking on hospital surfaces that can cause hospital acquired infections (HAI). The portable room disinfection system utilizes pulsed xenon ultraviolet (UV) light and is effective against even the most dangerous superbugs and multi-drug resistant organisms (MDRO), including methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Clostridium difficile (C. diff), VRE, norovirus and influenza. Additionally, the Xenex Germ-Zapping Robot has been proven effective against both the Ebola virus and Anthrax, and can easily be incorporated into a facility’s disease containment and biodefense strategy.
