Trinity Health reports that their healthcare associated infection rates have declined by half in the past two years.and it’s all thanks to robots. 

Dalton and Lando were deployed two years ago. The germ zapping robots use ultraviolet light to sanitize rooms at Trinity hospital. They eliminate viruses, bacteria and other pathogens on surfaces. 

Since they’ve been around the hospitals HAI’s have decreased by 47%.

“We clean the room, we bring it in, we don’t make the bed, we leave the mattress exposed the handrails are exposed –we bring the robot in and it’s for minutes on each side of the bed and then four minutes in the bathroom.
