EVEN Professor Shelly Miller has received a new award from the Mt. Sinai Medical Center, New York.
Title: Application of Test Protocol for Whole-room Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI) Surface Decontamination of Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Klebsiella species and Clostridium difficile.
Purpose of Project: To determine in a controlled laboratory setting, the degree to which mobile whole-room ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) surface contamination devices reduce the bioburden of significant pathogens on high-touch surfaces that are responsible for hospital-acquired infections. To use the laboratory results to plan a demonstration in use in a clinical setting.
This new research project will start July 15th, 2015.
