Using technology to help fight hospital infections

An evaluation report on a new laundry system using ozone disinfection is available to help reduce healthcare associated infections. Ozone disinfection properties are well recognised and documented but its use for laundry is relatively new.

University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust carried out the RRP1 evaluation on the innovative technology. The report Showcase Hospitals Report Number Eight: OTEX Laundry System publishes the outcomes and cost savings achieved at the hospital. The report includes a business case template for use by any trust considering using this product.
