Somerville, NJ (January 21, 2020) Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital- Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Somerset, a RWJBarnabas facility, is implementing Seal Shield’s breakthrough UV-C disinfection technology in order to better protect patients from the cross-contamination hazards associated with mobile devices.
Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Somerset’s infection prevention efforts have resulted in lower infection rates, including catheter-associated urinary tract infections, central-line associated bloodstream infections, methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), C. difficile infections and surgical site infections. These low infection rates are among the quality indicators that have led to the hospital’s national quality recognitions, including an “A” Hospital Safety Score from the Leapfrog Group nine times. The hospital has also received the 2019 Healthgrades Patient Safety Excellence Award, ranking among the top 5% in the nation for patient safety.
Seal Shield developed the ElectroClave to disinfect mobile devices using UV-C technology. Devices are managed via an RFID software backbone, while disinfection reminders and compliance monitoring are accomplished via push notifications through the accompanying app. According to Bradley Whitchurch, CEO of Seal Shield, “ElectroClave is the most comprehensive mobility disinfection management solution available today.” To learn more about this technology, please visit the Seal Shield website or contact Seal Shield directly at (877) 325-7443.
