Increase Safety At Your Facility With Novaerus Air Disinfection Technology

June 11, 2020

As facilities reopen, an increasing number of office-based practices are implementing air disinfecting systems as an extra layer of sanitation and security.

As coronavirus restrictions ease across the United States, medical facilities are gradually opening their doors for non-urgent examinations and procedures. Creating and maintaining a safe clinical environment is paramount, and medical teams are working hard to reformat their operations for maximum infection control. 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have laid out a roadmap for safely reopening doctors’ offices, ambulatory care centers, and other facilities. The guide breaks down distancing and sanitation steps that should be taken before facilities open, while patients are present, and after patients leave.

Recommendations from the CDC include:

  • Posting signs at entrances and in waiting areas to alert patients to sanitation protocols
  • Providing supplies including tissues, hand sanitizer, soap and sinks, and trash cans for patients to use in the office
  • Reconfiguring the waiting room for optimal social distancing or allowing patients to wait for their appointment in their cars
  • Cleaning and sanitizing frequently used surfaces with an EPA-registered disinfectant

For the full list of recommendations, read the CDC’s Get Your Clinic Ready for Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

While these are certainly valuable tools and practices for preventing the spread of coronavirus, there are further steps facilities can take to help ensure patients and staff are protected. As facilities reopen, an increasing number of office-based practices are implementing air disinfecting systems as an extra layer of sanitation and security.

A popular solution for office-based medical practices is the Novaerus Protect 900 Portable Air Disinfecting System. The Novaerus Protect 900 goes beyond traditional air filtration and provides true proactive air hygiene, reducing the risks of virus transmission. The Protect 900 is just one unit in a line of Novaerus products that have been independently tested to reduce MS2 Bacteriophage, a commonly used surrogate for SARS-CoV* (Coronavirus) by 99.9%.

While other air purification systems offer similar benefits, Novaerus products are well-suited to office-based practices because the technology is cost-effective to operate and releases no harmful byproducts. Instead of relying on harsh chemicals, Novaerus uses patented ultra-low energy plasma technology that helps to deactivate airborne pathogens on contact.
