Lima Memorial Health System in Ohio has purchased a second Tru-D SmartUVC, an advanced UVC germ-eliminating robot available, to its infection prevention team.

Through the support of PotashCorp, LMHS purchased its first Tru-D SmartUVC robot in August. The community held a fundraising event, sponsored by the Lima Memorial Foundation, to purchase a second disinfecting robot.

"We are thankful to our community members who share our vision of advancing healthcare in our region and came together to support the purchase of the Tru-D," said Mike Swick, president and CEO of Lima Memorial Health System.

A recent study said the largest decreases in incidence of multidrug-resistant organisms was when Tru-D was added to the standard cleaning strategy. Tru-Ds can fight MRSA, CRE, C. diff, VRE, MERS, Ebola and other infectious diseases.
