These infections, such as MRSA and C. diff, can be devastating and even deadly: current CDC statistics show that in the United States, 1 in every 25 patients will contract a hospital acquired infection (HAI) costing upwards of $30 billion annually, with close to 75,000 patients dying. Recent studies have demonstrated that on average, only about 50% of high-touch surfaces are cleaned as a result of a manual clean. Even after cleaning, it was found 71% of VRE occupied rooms and 78% of C. diff occupied rooms still tested positive for VRE or C. diff. Even after four rounds of disinfection with disinfectants, 25% of rooms were still contaminated with MRSA and Acinetobacter**.
The Xenex mission is to eliminate harmful bacteria, viruses and spores that can cause hospital acquired infections, and to become the new standard method for disinfection in healthcare facilities worldwide. Used in nearly 300 hospitals across the United States, published peer reviewed studies confirm that Xenex Germ-Zapping Robots™ can reduce the occurrence of HAIs.
1. 53% reduction in C. diff infection rates.
2. 57% reduction in MRSA infection rates.
3. 100% elimination of VRE in isolation rooms.
