UVC Light Banner 1

Our August Zoom webinar features infection control expert Taylor Cottano discussing UVC light technology and how it can enhance your organization's HCAHPS scores.



Ultraviolent light (UVC) is a method of disinfection that can help augment the current infection prevention program within your organization. This type of light, also known as a “germicidal” lamp, has the ability to reduce the spread of dangerous bacteria and superbugs.

Improving your infection prevention strategies is an important component in making your patients feel safe in your care. Infection control expert Taylor Cottano discusses UVC light technology, how it works, and how your organization can enhance HCAHPS scores through its implementation.


In this webinar, participants will learn:

  • Discuss what UVC lights are and how they work.
  • Understand how UVC light disinfection works.
  • Identify the limitations and risks of using UVC light.
  • Understand how to implement UVC light into the infection prevention program.
  • Learn how to use UVC light as a driver to increase HCAHPS scores.
