Do hospitals use UV light to sanitize?

What is the benefit of using UV light sterilization in the operating room?

Operating rooms can get messy and contaminated quite easily. Surgeons and other workers in an operating room work very hard to keep their workstation clean and have many measures in place that keep their patient healthy and safe but often there are harmful bacteria and germs that linger.

UV light sanitizing is effective and safe to use on any devices or tools. Duke Health did a study of UV light in hospitals and found it does reduce transmission of viruses and bacteria that can cause new infections. Using UV light in an operating room provides another layer of protection and peace of mind that both the healthcare workers and their patients are getting the safest and cleanest care.

Hospitals should help fight disease and not be a breeding ground for germs and bacteria that spread sickness and UV light is an effective and safe way to keep hospitals functioning and helping patients get better.
