Sutter Medical Center Deploys Germ-Zapping Robot to Enhance Patient Safety

Posted by on Mar 10, 2017 | 0 comments

SACRAMENTO – Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento is the first hospital in the Sacramento area to enhance patient safety by deploying a Xenex Germ-Zapping Robot™ to battle the germs and bacteria that put patients at risk.

Patricia Mullins, Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento EVS UV Tech, demonstrates how the new Xenex robot named Xhaiden I works in disinfecting rooms.

The comprehensive medical center in midtown Sacramento already posts an infection rate that is lower than the state and national averages, but officials acquired the robot in their quest to wipe out hospital-acquired infections altogether. The Xenex robot has been proven through scientific studies to destroy hard-to-kill superbugs – such as multi-drug resistant organisms like C. diff and MRSA – in hard-to-clean places.

Sutter Medical Center’s robot – Xhaiden I, which means “Beam of Cleansing Light” – was named by staff and is operated by the hospital’s Environmental Services team. Use of the Xenex robot enhances the hospital’s already thorough processes for cleaning rooms and killing the pathogens that cause infections. Read More
