Snap, Crackle, Pop zapping germs at Edward Hospital
Posted by Edward Hospital
June 10, 2014

Edward Hospital is using Xenex germ-zapping robots to kill deadly bacteria and superbugs before they make patients sick.

Snap, Crackle and Pop, as named by Edward employees, are being used in patient rooms (including Critical Care, Cardiac ICU, Medical Oncology, Orthopedics, Medical-Surgical and NICU), operating rooms and support areas.  The portable robots, about the size of R2D2, take about 10 minutes to disinfect a patient room, and about 15 minutes to disinfect an OR.

Read the full story and see a photo of the germ-zapping robot.
