You've probably heard about those so-called "germ-zapping robots" that some companies are touting as the new smoking gun of getting rid of those pesky and deadly healthcare-associated infections.

Well, don't go opening your wallets just yet. Those machines, while effectively using UV light technology to zap infectious organisms, also cost thousands of dollars and their use should be a part of an already well-established infection control plan at your facility.

Still, some companies say they believe so much in the technology and studies have shown such an effective rate of infection reduction that they are willing to give your money back if they don't work for your facility.

Judge for yourself by reading the article in the monthly hospital safety resource Briefings on Hospital Safety. Subscribers can read the article here. Non-subscribers can find out more about the journal, its benefits, and how to subscribe by clicking here.
