Healthcare facilities have been working hard to protect patients and employees from contracting and spreading COVID-19. One strategy to curb outbreaks is using UV-C Technology, such as the iCleanse Swift, to disinfect frequently touched items and devices that are passed from person to person. iCleanse Swift reduces the spread of infectious pathogens to nursing home patients and employees by killing 99.9% of bacteria on devices and other items in less than 30 seconds.

iCleanse is in use in hundreds of U.S. hospitals and nursing homes, where over 87% of nurses and physicians are using technology such as tablets and smartphones, in addition to other devices and items like stethoscopes. Devices save time between patients by quickly inputting patient information; providing patient check-ins; and tracking visitors.  Keeping healthcare facilities open, safe, and efficient is iCleanse’s top priority.

For over three decades,  Athena  Health Care Systems, based in Farmington, CT,  has been a regional leader in providing  skilled nursing care, short-term, post-hospital rehabilitation, assisted and senior living, as well as home health, hospice care, and private duty  program services.
