The Linders Health Institute, the foremost training resource for infection control certification for building professionals, is pleased to introduce their newest industry sponsor, Sanuvox Technologies Inc. Sanuvox UV technology has been tested and described in The Lancet, a peer reviewed and highly acclaimed medical journal, the only company in North America to earn that kind of recognition. The relationship between The Linders Health Institute and Sanuvox emphasizes the growing awareness of the risks and dangers posed by healthcare associated infections. The sponsorship is expected to advance the critical missions of both companies.
The Linders Health Institute develops and delivers training and certification programs for contractors, builders, architects, engineers and attorneys who work in or with hospitals, medical offices and long-term care facilities. According to Marlene Linders, Executive Director of the company, “Our association with Sanuvox Technologies is a natural, given our common interest in working to control and eliminate the airborne contaminants and pathogens that cause infectious diseases in healthcare facilities and other indoor public spaces. We are pleased they have come onboard with our team.”
Since 1995, Sanuvox Technologies Inc. has produced ultraviolet cleaning system technologies to achieve extremely high disinfection rates in terms of airborne viruses, bacteria and molds. Jocelyn Dame, CEO of Sanuvoc Technologies explains: “The use of Sanuvox high-intensity ultraviolet germicidal systems can effectively control the transmission of contaminants in indoor air. Facilities that utilize our technologies to slash the level of airborne pathogens are able to reduce risk and costs for facility managers and to diminish exposure for patients, occupants and caregivers.”
The Sanuvox technology supports accepted best practices for hospitals in meeting positive clinical outcomes as outlined by Joint Commission’s National Patient Safety Goal for the reduction of hospital infections. Through research, the Centers for Disease Control has established the tremendous costs in terms of illness, mortality, lost days at work, and litigation, of hospital/healthcare acquired infections (HAIs). To address these losses, Sanuvox UV Technology systems have been tested and installed in healthcare clinics and buildings in New York and Florida with highly positive results. “Our clients have saved hundreds of thousands of dollars in Medicare HAI costs, absenteeism and energy consumption,” reports Mr. Dame.
The Linders Health Institute is the sole course provider for infection control certification for Best Practices in construction. Their courses have been accepted and trusted by prestigious institutions as Seventh Day Adventist, Florida Hospital and Emlab P&K/Test America. The Linders Health Institute educates and trains professionals engaged in the construction and management of healthcare facilities for infection prevention to help with legal due diligence, risk reduction and liability management.
