Patient safety and care enhanced by disinfection systems

Surfacide's Helios UV-C system will be used in the disinfection of patient and family environments at the University College London Hospitals Trustees’ (UCLH) Cotton Rooms.

A private four-star boutique hotel, the Cotton Rooms offer patients and their families a luxury experience as an alternative to inpatient care throughout their treatment. Created as an innovative form of ambulatory care and within walking distance to UCL hospitals the Cotton Rooms offer UCLH patients warm and personalised services, an around-the-clock care team and a renewed sense of independence.

Surfacide UK will implement a managed service using the Helios system, in a bid to enhance patient care as it helps eliminate healthcare-associated infections (HAIs).

“We are excited to be able to partner with an innovative facility like the UCLH Cotton Rooms,” said Gunner Lyslo, founder and CEO of Surfacide. “Surfacide’s Helios system has been found to significantly lower HAIs and combat infection rates, a vital initiative in a facility dedicated to hosting patients undergoing critical treatments like chemotherapy.” 

As a world leader in oncology care facilities, UCLH constantly looks to improve the patient experience and increase safety for everyone. The Surfacide Helios features a 10-to-20-minute disinfection cycle that will be utilised for surface disinfection of Cotton Rooms’ facilities twice per month. The hotel’s personalised managed service is operated by Surfacide UK to serve as a proactive safety measure used with traditional cleaning methods to further protect the health of guests. 

“We strive to provide innovative ambulatory care for our guests undergoing rigorous clinical tests and treatments,” said a Cotton Rooms spokesperson. “The implementation of the Surfacide Helios system will further protect the health of our guests as they maintain a sense of independence not available through inpatient care, as well as our dedicated staff.”
