We learned early in the COVID-19 pandemic that nursing homes, assisted living, and senior facilities are at high risk of being affected by COVID-19. An outbreak of the virus in one of these facilities could be devastating due to the vulnerable nature of their resident populations. Under these circumstances, assisted living and senior care facilities must implement aggressive measures and take every possible precaution to limit exposure and prevent the spread of COVID-19. In addition to following CDC guidelines for cleaning and disinfection, facilities must also educate and equip personnel to perform their duties responsibly, while also reassuring residents of their safety and well-being. At Prospera Health and Hospitality Services (PHHS), our goal is to provide assisted living and senior care facilities with solutions that will allow them to operate safely and successfully in the midst of COVID-19. We offer a comprehensive consulting process and a cleaning product inventory that will empower facilities to care for their residents effectively and confidently.
UVC Disinfection and Coronavirus Cleaning Protocols
In order to protect their residents against the transmission of COVID-19, nursing home, assisted living, and senior care facilities must be committed to following CDC guidelines and enhanced safety measures to effectively clean and disinfect high-touch surfaces and common areas, while also having procedures in place for responding to confirmed coronavirus cases. One solution for enhanced sanitation is UVC disinfection, which is an efficient and effective method of reducing indoor air pollutants and improving infection control procedures throughout public facilities. UV air purifiers are designed to use short-wave ultraviolet light (UVC light) to inactivate airborne pathogens and microorganisms like mold, bacteria and viruses, providing effective, single-cycle, whole-room disinfection. This is especially important in large residential facilities where rooms might be connected by a shared ventilation system and opening windows for air circulation could pose a health or safety risk. UVC disinfection technology provides a heightened standard of whole-room disinfection by targeting microorganisms in the air and on surfaces to prevent the spread of infection. PHHS partners with Skytron to provide facilities with a variety of UV light disinfection products and solutions to perform frequent and effective cleaning of facilities. PHHS would love to help you find the right UVC disinfection solutions for your needs. Please contact us to learn more.
